I am wanting to grow some Goji Berry bushes.
A few months ago I soaked some (regular dried store bought) Goji fruit, then cut them open, used the baggie method to germinate the individual seeds and transplanted them.
The plants started growing, but all of them (and there were more then a dozen) died after transplanting them - I suspect I transplanted them way to early, and also the environment was wrong. I want to try again now that Spring is on its way - but want to avoid the mistakes I made.
[ At the moment New Zealand is going into Spring its still quite cold - most days are 10-15 degrees C outside, but a lot of sun, and nights between 3 and 15 c. I can keep them indoors in an artificial environment, but I suspect my growing light is not great for them. I also have a polytunnel - this seems to be nice and warm during the day, but cut out a lot of light and probably only marginally warmer then outside at night ]
Should I remove the Goji seeds from the Goji Berry when trying to germinate them or am I better just planting the whole Goji Berry fruit in the ground ?
Does the temperature of the ground need to be consistently over 22 degrees for germination to occur ?
Once germination has occurred how do I get the seedlings to a point where I can plant them in the ground outside without them dying ?
