More about the wonderful goumi berry
I've been asked many times about the goumi berries I grow in my nursery. Though we're sold out for this year, I'll be carrying them again in the spring.
Here's the quick story on why they're a good shrub to grow:
1. They're edible
2. They're rich in antioxidants
3. They're a nitrogen-fixer
4. They're short and tuck in well next to larger trees
5. They're drought-tolerant
6. They're attractive
7. They're basically care-free
Though they don't grow as fast as their cousin the silverthorn, goumi berries grow at a decent rate and are easy to shape however you like.
Here's another post I found by a gal who has plenty of nice photos and a goumi berry syrup recipe.
Plant a few: they sail through our winters and have plenty of reasons why they're worth growing.
