PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION
When placing your bare root orders, please be aware that AS SOON as the trees/plants are available to ship (Dec. for trees, Jan. for plants), we will begin shipping IMMEDIATELY - no matter where you are located !!!
There are several factors why we must ship immediately:
ATTENTION "POLAR VORTEX" AFFECTED CUSTOMERS
When your order arrives, you should remove it from the outside elements before nightfall. If you will not be present at the destination when the order will be delivered, you should either ship the order to another location or make sure someone will be there to take care of your order.
While your order is hardy enough to withstand freezing temperatures in its box, you definitely should not leave it outside in sub-zero temperatures for days on end.
AS IMPORTANTLY, you then need to open the box, remove the trees/plants from their plastic bag, store them in a basement, cellar or garage, covering their roots with sand, dirt, sawdust or wood chips (do not use cedar that is toxic to the trees) and keep them moist until you are able to plant them in the ground in Spring.
Botanical Name: Lycium barbarum
For centuries the Chinese have used parts of the entire goji plant for food or medicine. Use of stems and leaves is little known in the United States, but the highest concentrations of healthful antioxidants can be found in the leaves. Fruit in the health food market in the form of dried berries and juice is more familiar.
For successful growth, is critical that the soil pH remain at 6.8 or higher. High nitrogen is not recommended for these plants. One year old roots.
When we received them on January 13 or 14, they already had little green shoots and buds sprouting out of the root. We got them into pots within a couple of days, and in less than a month the green buds have already opened and extended five inches! It's been a pleasure to watch them grow literally day by day. I can't wait for berries!Review by skysnolimit (on 2/7/15)
I got 2 plants last year from Peaceful Valley. They were amazing, 3 feet tall by late summer and even harvested a few goji berries the 1st year. They might have done even better if a hail storm hadn't destroyed my garden in July.Review by FarmerSue (on 2/6/15)
I was so excited to receive the goji berry bit after following the instructions and giving extra attention only one lot leaves. PV wouldn't give me a credit very dissapointing and a huge waste of money and time!Review by divadetaos (on 12/20/14)
I ordered 3 of these back in October and was informed they wouldn't ship till mid January. I was a little wary about paying for something now and trusting the company to follow through several months later but I took the chance. Sure enough mid january they showed up. 3 little twigs that looked like they wouldn't amount to anything. I placed each in it's own small pot gave them some water and thought \"this was a wast of money\". Man was I wrong! These little guys are really getting after it! All three have sprouted leaves after only 2 weeks. I still have another 2 months at least before I can transplant outside and if they keep growing at this rate I'll have a real jungle here in the house. Can\"t wait to see how they do outside.Review by Dean (on 2/1/14)
