Saskatoon - a North-American blueberry-like plant producing highly-nutritious edible berries from June. Plants give masses of vitamin-rich berries in the summer, said to have a unique, sharp yet refreshing flavour. Gorgeous autumn-leaf colour.
Goji Berry - Produces masses of red berries which can be eaten fresh, cooked or dried. Plants withstand drought and windy conditions. Water well in summer and feed with a high-potassium fertiliser once it flowers in summer. Fruit grows on one-year old wood so prune fruited stems hard back and tie in leafy shoots which will fruit the following year.
Raspberry Black Jewel - This variety is set to be a hit – with so many health benefits it’s a must for any home-grower wanting to harvest vitamin-rich berries from June. As juicy as blackberries but with the perfumed flavour of raspberries, the fruits are lovely to eat fresh from the plant or added to smoothies rich in antioxidants and vitamins.
All plants healthy if somewhat on the small side. Some coddling needed to get them garden ready. The goji looked like a stick with few leaves? The goji I purchased from Unwins is a true bushy plant full of vigour straight out of the box. Come on Marshalls.. It's getting to be a habit your plants not making it to health from delivery to success. Thank goodness for the guarantee! Shame I'm ending up looking elsewhere for healthy replacements. Just what is going on?
Strong plants as advertised. They are coming along nicely. Can't wait to harvest the fruits from my plants.
To my utter surprise, I have to say that I was quite disappointed with this purchase. I thought that the Saskatoon berry plants were very small. I expected something bigger and more substantial for the price. I potted them up and they are growing but I still feel that they could have been better described in the leaflet / web site.
