    I am so happy with my red valerian! Do you harvest the root as you would regular Valerian in the fall of the second year?
    Thank you.

      Hi constance, I have to admit I’ve never tried this as an extract–really like regular valeriana officinalis for that. A scientist did have a study going on this for some years and I harvested the taproots of older plants in the fall and sent them to him. richo
