Ashwagandha / Indian Ginseng - Seedling

Ashwagandha / Indian Ginseng - Seedling Image

Aswagandha is an erect, many branched shrub with very tiny green to yellow flowers.
It grows well from hardwood cuttings which root quickly, or from seed.
It has a good growth spurt in Spring but does it's real growing in Summer. Berries are usually ready to begin to harvest in early summer but we have found that they continue to produce all the way through to Autumn.
Traditional uses of Ashwagandha include fevers and inflammatory conditions.
We use this herb almost daily as a substitute for Ginseng which we find very difficult to grow here.
We find the berries useful after having a cold or flu as they seem to speed recovery, but the roots are particularly good as a general immune support tonic and can be easily dried to keep on hand.
