  1. Question

    Crissy

    I have a magnolia tree under which I grow blueberries and lingonberries in Boise, ID. I’m thinking it is the same soil that would assist goldenseal and ginseng. I have read it is not good to plant in the spring, as it should establish itself over the winter. I’m fine to purchase for spring or wait till fall if that is the better timeframe that maximizes success for the plants. Should I purchase for spring or wait till fall? Is the Magnolia a bad idea to plant under?

      Hi Crissy,
      This kind of thing is best resolved by moving ahead and planting and seeing how things work out. I would suggest giving the goldenseal a deep mulch of rotted leaves or coco coir. Our potted plants do fine when planted early in the spring. Otherwise you can take advantage of the fall bare-root special that is less expensive.

      Thanks Richo, makes sense that your potted version would be just as good as waiting till fall. I’m always game for trying, thanks!!

      Can goldenseal be grown in a large container? By large I mean golds more than 20 pounds of soil.

      I once had a large planting of goldenseal in the moist shade under the benches in my greenhouse, all planted in deep flats, less than 20 lbs of soil each, and the plants grew fantastically.
