Great plantPacked and shipped well. Took out of box and waited couple days before actually relocating in a big planter. First year of planting I had berries everywhere, very prolific producer. I was amazed. I had ordered another plant from another company that I had actually put in the ground and it took off and produced as well. Was surprised at the number of berries I had. I have ordered from burpee for years, and once in a while I will find that in the shipping (UPS or FEDEX), gets "rough" with the handling, but burpee does guarantee their plants.

AMAZING Goji Berry Plant!When I received my Goji Berry Plant I had to set it aside. I ended up remembering 2 weeks later and when I pulled out the plant from it's packaging, I thought I Had killed it. I watered it immediately with water mixed with a fertilizer and put it in my window and it amazingly resurrected and is currently a robust and healthy plant! I don't know if it was the plants nature or the way it was packed for shipping (maybe a little of both, perhaps) but I would like to thank Burpee for their wonderful service!

We will seeMy order contained 19 plants of 4 varieties. The Goji berries looked weak. Thee were more broken pieces of Goji plant than whole goji plants. I planted and will keep my fingers crossed. I will update status in the spring.

I'm really loving it!Got mine in spring 2014 and put it in the ground. It hasn't grown super tall in its first year (maybe 30"), but I'm getting lots of little berries. Super neat. Pretty sure I'm going to buy more next spring.
One note from my area at least... I often have insect problems with plants, but so far at least, my local bugs seem to have ZERO interest in my goji berry plant. This alone is pretty great.

Mixed feelingsMy Goji Berry arrived looking very pathetic but when planted in a 5 gallon container, it took off. However all the leaves are a light green and I don't believe they are supposed to be this color. Not sure what is going on, any ideas would be appreciated, I do have a couple of flowers that bloomed this morning. Just want to know its healthy.

Perfect Goji plantMy plant came looking just like "winsorw's" which he seems unsatisfied with. I however am loving my Goji-Berry plant and it is doing fantastic (as you can see in my pictures). I bought it from Burpee.com on March 1 2014 and it is May 22 2014 today. I watered it right away when I received it, then planted it a few hours later. It is planted in Pro-Mix Ultimate Organic Mix soil, with dolomite mixed in along with adding fertilizer. I couldn't ask for the Goji to be doing better.

Not so good looking Goji berryThe plant I received was very small and doesn't look healthy, a few small branches are broken due to shipping. It's not worth the price.
