      Hi Max, Dang-gui is monocarpic, meaning it dies after flowering. You can save the plant by cutting back the flowers (usually in the second year) or by saving the seeds and propagating on that way. I don’t know of any other method, it is taprooted and doesn’t respond well to cuttings. Richo

      Hello Obua, Uganda is a lovely, lush, green country where I have travelled and enjoyed the people and especially the aloe diversity. Dang-gui is not a good choice for growing there–it requires a winter. I am glad you contacted us, it is good to hear from someone in Uganda, but we probably cannot successfully send you seeds. Richo

      Hi Cliff, I hope so, the Indian Summer has hit and we have flowers on the mullein and seeds sprouting everywhere. Ashitaba seed and Dang-gui seeds are swelling. Nature willing, we will have them both.

    More notes specific to this plant:  In China, the flowering stems are cut back to drive more energy to the root. The plant is carefully nurtured and fertilized in the first year to produce a large root.  The root is then dug and overwintered in the cellar and replanted the following spirng.  In the fall, when the aerial parts begin to go yellow, the root is dug and cleaned of earth, dried for 2 to 3 days until they become soft.  Fibrous roots are trimmed off, leaving only the central, carrot-like root.  The roots are then pierced and hung on a string in a smoke-filled room.  They are heated and dried in this environment until they attain the appearance of the commercial root, which is familiar to most practitioners of TCM:  Main root thick and long, outer skin yellow-brown with an oily sheen, cross-section yellow-white color, strong smoky fragrance.

      Hi, Harvest on Dang-gui is in the late fall so the seeds are usually available starting in November or so. Hit waitlist, we will enable these when we have them. r
