Well rooted Ashwagandha plants.
Native to India, Ashwagandha, also known as Indian Ginseng, will grow to a height of 3 feet or more and produce light green flowers from midsummer onwards which will develop into orange or deep red berries by autumn.
In Ayurvedic medicine, the root of this low-growing shrub is said to be effective for a host of conditions, including general weakness, impotence, infertility, poor memory and others.
A truly amazing plant, able to adapt to our cooler climate as an annual and enabling a root harvest after the first frost.
If you want to keep the plant longer, pot it up again in the autumn around end of October and put it back in the greenhouse.
