Being a native to the Asian/Himalayan area's I would presume the PH would be neutral (6.5) to slightly alkaline (7.5). Once established they will grow in almost any type of soil from sandy to clay, but they tend to flower and fruit better in well drained soil. It prefers full sun to partial shade; full sun will result in the best Goji Berry production. The Goji plant does not grow well in soggy or wet conditions. In extreme heat some shading is desirable to prevent wilting.

I would like to know how to grow Goji Berries from seed.

I have been trying to propagate some improved goji cultivars, with most of the seeds germinating successfully. But every time, the tiny seedlings are damping off and all dying within a few weeks.

I have also tried growing the common regular Goji Berries and exactly the same thing happened so it must be something I'm doing wrong. Please let me know how to keep them alive and growing when they are still small. Thank you.

Yeah had the same experience, I rehydrated a handfull of fruit from a health food packet, had heaps of seedlings, ended up with 6 , now over a metre tall.
I only used searles potting mix at the time, was in a sunny spot till 2pm.

I had really good success starting them off in jiffy7 peat pellets. The cocofibre ones may be good also. I had no dampoff.

I read that if you sprinkle Cinnamon Powder around the seedlings it helps as it acts as a fungicide.

Anyway, managed to pick up another Black Goji plant (Lycium Ruthenicum)today so that saves all the hassle of trying to start one from seed. It was from a place that grows them in a polytunnel so maybe that's the trick to them.

The other variety I want to grow is the giant non-astringent Goji that you can eat out of hand like a fruit, but I need to get more seeds of this one from Europe and then try to solve this damping problem.

I usually water my seedlings from the bottom up (5 mins or less) and that seems to help with damping off.

My Black Goji plant flowered profusely last summer/autumn, however I only got 4 fruit. I'm hoping to get a better crop next summer...fingers crossed
