      Hello there, No, ashwagandha does not self-seed in the temperate north and it is best grown as a spring-planted annual in 7B. It doesn’t help much to bring it indoors–dig the root, dry it, and enjoy. Richo

      The berries contain 30 to 50 small chili like seeds that are easily started for more plants. If you get berries, you are home free. I turned 50 berries into 1,000 individual plants in about 8 weeks.

      I got lucky in 6b. I was gifted a small start, I got three berries, couldn’t help myself, was compelled to eat one, but saved the other two for starting this year. It’s almost that time.
