My comment is more of a plea for Help. I purchased a wolfberry plant online and have asked for assistance from the vendor with no response. I've also spent hours vainly trying to find the answers online. Have had my potted plant indoors since Spring and it has grown to an awkward spindly 9 feet height, 4 inch width. I've read the deer will eat it if I put it outside. I also don't know how it would handle being put out in winter, after spending all summer indoors. How much should I prune it? Does it need a winter "hardening off"?
