Ashwagandha, sometimes referred to as Indian ginseng, is a plant utilized in Ayurveda, the Indian system of traditional medicine. Its root has a smell of horses, and it is said to give users a horse's virility and power. Ashva means "horse" and gandha means "smell" in Sanskrit. Although the plant has many uses, an extract of its roots is the most widely used supplement. As an adaptogen, ashwagandha is thought to improve the body's capacity to withstand stress.

Planting Instructions:
Plant ashwagandha in a dry, sunny location in your garden. It needs sandy, well draining soil with a pH of 7.5-8. Growing Ashwagandha is not possible in soil that retains moisture and remains waterlogged and will grow best in temperatures between 70-95°. Plant seeds 3/4" deep and 5 inches apart when the temperature is around 70 F (20 C). Water the seedlings well while they are establishing, but don't soak. Think summer shower, not the constant rain of Seattle. Thin out the weak plants after a month of growing, leaving the space around 2 feet between plants. Ashwagandha is ready to harvest in 150 – 180 days when flower and berries start to form and leaves begins to dry out.
