  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.

      Is Chinese licorice easier to grow in wet soils than the glabra species? Glabra often dies in the wet winters of POrtland and Seattle.

      yes, chinese licorice is much easier to overwinter. i have glabra in a sandbed and its going on third year so that might be a good choice for you–likes alkaline soils. r

  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?
