Prices September 2012
« on: September 06, 2012, 08:40:25 PM »
Hey everyone.  Bloodroot prices are up.

I can pay $12/pound for completely dry, completely clean (no mold or dirt) bloodroot.  I might  be able to do a little better if I buy it in combination with ginseng.

Personally, I just watch the patches in early June and pick the seed pods just as they are getting ready to pop open.  I then plant them (more like scatter them and rake them in) in pots or flats burried up to the top and wait until next spring.  After a couple years, they are big enough to transplant.

I don't raise enough to give you any real insight, but there are starting to be enough resources on the net and in writing (Dr.s Persons and Davis is one good example).
