    For more information on growing this herb, see our book “Growing at-risk medicinal herbs, cutivation, conservation and ecology,” which has a whole chapter on Echinacea.  One of the photos is of fresh Echinacea angustifolia roots as they looked harvesting them from our farm after 3 years of growth.  They turned out very nicely and were in high demand from medicine makers, who often prefer angustifolia over other species.  We grew these by preparing a fine seed bed in the early spring and direct-seeding the seeds, allowing the plants to grow close together, as one would carrots, perhaps, and found that we had a very good yield that way, about 5 lbs fresh per 20 row feet.

    Great germination!

    Typical of nearly all the seeds purchased from Strictly Medicinal, these are nearly jumping out of the pot after a brief cold-moist stratification and going on the heat mat under grow lights. Nearly 100% germination rate and very healthy looking seedlings.
