How to Grow Ashwagandha

Ashwagandha is easy to grow from seed. The plant has an average diameter of 9-12 inches, and grows up to 36 inches in temperate climates and up to seven feet tall in areas similar to where the countries it is native to (e.g., India).10

Ashwagandha prefers warmer, drier growing conditions, and should be placed in full-sun for best results. Seeds should be planted in well-drained soil about twelve inches apart.12 The roots, which are between 2 1/2 and 6 1/2 feet in length,10 are harvested after the first frost of winter has passed.12 In hot, dry climates ashwagandha is typically harvested 150-180 days after planting.10 Roots are then cut into 4-inch chunks and dried.10
