  1. Question

    May

    The picture you have for Chinese Licorice doesn’t look like the other images I saw on internet, am I wrong? Also I wanted to buy 1 plant of Chinese licorice but when I selected the 1 option, the price is reduced from $7.50 to $7, is that for the Glycyrrhiza glabra? The pricing under the Glycerrhiza uralensis doesn’t help me either. Please let me know if you have a Glycerrhiza uralensis and how much will it cost? Thanks!

      Well, the internet is a terrible place to get information unless you arrive at a place where someone who actually grows and knows the plant is giving you the information. My main focus on the Chinese licorice is to choose a cultivar that has a sweet root, which means it has the active constituents. I can find a thousand misidentified and misleading photos and bits of info on the internet.

  2. Question

    Adelia Hitt

    I have 3 Chinese licorice plants uralensis . that have germinated and are doing well. What about overwintering. I live in Kansas City. Do I keep them in kitchen window or do I need to put them outside on balcony. They would be in a plastic container. Also I want to get the Glycyrrhiza glabra. How late do you ship this out?

      Hello Adelia,
      The licorice are herbaceous perennials so they should die back down to the crown (the top of the root) for winter dormancy and regrow in spring. They are best kept outdoors to properly go winter dormant. We have nice Glycyrrhiza glabra plants in stock and will ship up to mid-November. Richo
