I would like to plant some golden seal root and/or seed this spring. If any of you are willing to sell some, or having any tips on growing it, I would appreciate it. I would only be looking for a pound or two of the root.
I may be interested in other medicinals too.

I plan to retire in a couple years and would like to get a few root gardens growing for me to tend and tinker with.

don'tknow if i have ever heard of goldenseal seed,but someone might sell it.i have been lucky enough to buy 10 raised beds of cultiveted seal from a grower friend that's local..at adult age i know when i transplant it i will need 4 times the space for the roots after digging and breaking them down.i have to wait till after the seeds drop and he gets his all replanted with seed for free and also makes a little money.usually i spend a full day at a hunting friends land in southern pa digging wild for transplants in return he gets a couple day's stay up here hunting outta my wood duck blinds.hope this may help a little and if you have any more questions i'll try to help as much as i can.i have also been transplanting a lot of bloodroot in prepped beds as i feel it will be on par with seal in the near future and reseads itself with a nice crop every 4 yrs.good luck and enjoy.
