hillbilly or anyone else,
Any chance you can get me some Black Cohosh seeds this year when they are ripe for the pickin? I can pay you for them or trade you for some Goldenseal or Bloodroot seeds that I will have. Not a lot of Black Cohosh around here anymore and I would like to get some started.
Here is something I did this past late Spring, and early Summer:
There isn't much Cohosh growing natural up in my 'seng planting area, but there are some nice patches here locally. I had some local permissions, so on occasion, I would dig a couple and pot them for transplant. I took the whole plant, root (with a good clump of surrounding soil) and all, and transported 'em up to my 'seng planting area, whereupon I set them back out. I quit doing this right before they went to seed, but by late June, or very early July, I had transplanted about 15 nice mature plants. Hopefully, they will survive up in and around my 'seng beds. If they look like they're gonna make it, I'll do the same this coming season.
I was just thinking that if you knew of any patches along some of your travels, maybe you could do the same.
Also, from some of these local patches, I'll try and remember to collect some seed for you.
Thanks BFB, Another forum member is going to send me some roots soon too and fiddler might send me some seed too. I'll take some seeds if ya have any next summer. I just don't see much Black Cohosh around here at all. I can send you some goldenseal or blood root seed or roots too if ya want some.
Thanks Jughead, I sure wouldn't turn down some seeds. With the roots Lenno sent and some seeds I might be able to start a heck of a crop of Black Cohosh.
Jughead, I can send you some Goldenseal and Bloodroot seeds this fall if ya want some.
May try a few of each Latt.The Bloodroot I was taking care of at work got wiped out because of construction and Goldenseal is nearly non existent around these parts.It may be non existent since I haven't found any growing.I've covered a lot of territory too.I tried putting some seeds in but they never made it.
If anyone knows where I can get some maiden hair fern spores I would appreciate it.I've ordered around 100 spores but don't know if they will make it or not.Small roots will work too.
