Planting & Care
Native to India, Ashwagandha bushes will grow to heights of 3 feet or more and produce light green flowers from midsummer onwards which will develop into orange or deep red berries by fall.

Ashwagandha can be direct sown outdoors following the last frost, approximately 3/8" below the surface of the soil and kept evenly moist. Otherwise, you can sow indoors in early spring to give your starts additional time to develop before going outside. Sow seeds slightly closer to the surface (1/4") if using flats or other small containers indoors.

Soil: It needs sandy and well-draining soil in a way that water will drain out quickly, pH level should be around 7.5 – 8, neutral to slightly alkaline. Growing Ashwagandha is not possible in soil that retains moisture and remains waterlogged.

Water: Watering should be economical and only when plant seems thirsty. Indian ginseng is a drought resistant herb and doesn t like wet feet.

Temprature: Ashwagandha grows best when the temperature ranges between 70 F – 95 F (20 – 35 C), below or above this it grows much slower.

Fertilizer: Similar to ginseng, Ashwagandha plant is not fertilized usually due to medicinal uses of its roots. However, organic fertilizers are used. You can apply aged manure or compost near the base of plant.
