Spring Seed Starting- Chinese & Ayurvedic herbs

Been taking a break from blogging during the long dark winter. Spring is definitely springing around here and plants are sprouting right and left.

So far I have started:

Dan Shen Salvia miltiorriza
Dang Shen Codonopsis
She Chuan Zhi Cnidium monnieri
Ashwagandha Withania Somnifera
Huang Lian Coptis chinensis
Nirgundi Vitex negundo
Xuan Shen Scrophularia ningpoensis
Ku Shen Sophora flavescens
Huai Niu Xi Achyranthes bidentata

Also planted five astragalus plants that have overwintered wonderfully, repotted a Xuan Shen that also survived, and I am gently coaxing the turmeric to come up.
