Medicinal roots of the Eastern hardwood forest biome are foundational to western herbalism. Goldenseal, Black and Blue Cohosh, Wild Yam, Bloodroot and Stoneroot are good medicine and increasingly scarce in the native habitat. Feel free to avail yourself of our nursery propagated roots. We are currently accepting orders and it will be our pleasure to ship as soon as the plants go dormant, make buds, and we can dig. Plant in the shade garden or woodlands, roots down, buds up. Firm in and cover with mulch. Emergence is in the spring, and given the size of our stock, it is not all that unusual to get flowers the first year. Planting dormant forest roots in the fall is the most economical and effective way to bring these very potent entities into your gardens. Enjoy!
