FALL ROOTS

When fall rains once again soften the soils of shade garden or forest, our thoughts turn toward planting medicinal roots. Goldenseal, Black and Blue Cohosh, Bloodroot, Mayapple, Solomon's Seal , Stoneroot and Wild Yam are best increased by planting their dormant roots in the fall. The roots immediately begin to grow into the rich, moist soil. Buds swell and the plants prepare themselves for healthy aerial emergence and flowering come spring. To plant your roots, simply pull back the leafy mulch, bury the roots just below the surface of the mineral soil, buds pointing upwards, and cover with soil. Cover over with mulch, mulch that will probably be increased in depth as the trees lose their leaves. Planting spots in deep, rich soils in the dappled shade under hardwood trees is best. This includes alder and maple forests in the Pacific Northwest, the mixed hardwood forests of the central and eastern states, and shade gardens anywhere. We are happy to contribute to the spread of healing plants in shade gardens throughout the US. It is our pleasure to send the healthiest and most robust roots!
