Wild lettuce, Ashwaganda, Bloodroot
Answered by: Inge Poot
Question from: Justin

I have ordered wild lettuce seeds from you; how do you grow this herb? Also, I need growing instructions for Ashwaganda and Bloodroot seeds.

Wild lettuce seeds should be barely covered with soil in the seedbed and it will germinate in ten to fourteen days if the seedbed is kept moist and warm.

Ashwaganda seed are easy to germinate if you keep the seedbed moist and warm.

Bloodroot seed are very short-lived and must be sown as soon as the packet is received. Never allow the seed or the seedbed to dry out. Winter the seedflat outdoors and the seed will come up in early spring.
