We love herb gardening with exotic herb plants. A strong and vigorous plant, Ashwagandha is considered the "hottest herb in India" and is known as 'Indian Ginseng' and 'Winter Cherry'. The leaves and roots are used as both an aphrodisiac and a sedative!
Used by Ayurvedic healers for thousands of years, Ashwagandha is used to reduce inflammation, decrease stress and increase the libido. This
plant grows into a small, woody shrub with elliptical green leaves, producing small, uniform five-petaled flowers and small red seeds. Preferring hot, full sun, this herb will grow well after ALL chance of frost is gone. Given proper temperatures, soil depth and adequate (but not excessive) watering, the Ashwagandha root should be ready to harvest in the first year.
: Exotic Ashwagandha grows into a woody shrub up to 4 feet high.
: Plant in sun, after any threat of frost. It is a tropical plant!
: Water thoroughly only when dry to the touch.
: High quality, well-drained soil.
: This ginseng-like tonic of the Ayurvedics has been used mainly in cases of physical and mental exhaustion and makes a very good stimulant. Ashwagandha has been used in cases of sexual exhaustion, infertility, low sperm count, and impotence. Harvest the roots after the plant's foliage has died back following the first frost.
: Ashwagandha is in the same plant family as the tomato!
Ashwagandha, the "Indian ginseng" or winter cherry, has been used as a quite valuable herb in the Ayurvedic and indigenous medical system for over 3,000 years. The roots, leaves and fruits (berry) possess tremendous medicinal value. A famous Ayurvedic rejuvenative botanical used in many tonics and formulas, Ashwagandha helps maintain proper nourishment of the tissues, particularly muscle and bones, while supporting the proper function of the adrenals and reproductive system.
The woody branches of the Ashwagandha herb can sometimes be too tough for your scissors to handle. Our
are durable and stay sharp enough to prune and harvest even the toughest plants! Their compact design allows you to maneuver in tight spaces and they come in an array of bright colors. A must have tool for your garden!
