    How much would a plant thats at least 2 yrs old cost. I understand it has to be that old before you can use leaves for tea.

      Hi robin,
      There’s a lot of advice flying around right now but my understanding of Astragalus is that one uses the root, not the leaves. We have a little seed of this left, and we have the potted plants, first-year material. I have no potted 2-year plants available, sorry about that.

      I live in Phoenix, AZ, Zone 9 and wonder when the best time to plant Astragalus. If planted in May, now, would there be time for it to grow sufficient root. Other wise most years it could be planted in Feb when it warms here.

      Hi Bruce, I personally never hesitate to plant seeds and do plant seeds every day of the year. Perennials can be started anytime and will develop according to the seasons. In Pheonix, you’re going to want to find some shade for starting perennial seeds.

      Where is your nursery located? I would really LOVE to drop in and buy some things but have a feeling I am far from you (such a bummer!). Also, I am looking for seeds that are a) medicinal for GI/respiratory; and, if possible, also b) nitrogen fixers that would work in zone 5. Thanks a million!

      Hi Glenda,
      Right, we’re in southern oregon. Astragalus does fix atmospheric nitrogen and it is very good to assist recuperation from URI. Richo
