|19||Cohosh, Black||Ranunculaceae||Cimicifuga racemosa (dg fo pf wp)||2013-04-26 00:00:00||208 each seeds in 8cc blocks||plant||Sow in fall for germination in first or second spring, or give 3 months warm followed by 3 months cold followed by warm again. If this scenario is followed, germ then occurs in warm soil in 1-2 weeks. Work seedlings up in pots in the shadehouse for a year or two before transplanting out. A long-lived plant, development is slow at first, but given adequate compost and moisture during the growing season, monumental individuals can eventually be achieved.||Plant prefers edge of forest or shade garden. Black Cohosh withstands more shade than most forest-dependent plants, and if the seedlings are worked up for several years until they are quite large, then you can even plant it in the open garden with good results.||full shade||100 each||(Recently re-classified as Actaea racemosa*)
Perennial, native to the Eastern Forest biome in the US. Hardy to all temperate zones. One of the best and most robust of herbal landscape plants. Striking foliage and tall white racemes.
The tincture of fresh root is antidepressant, pain relieving, sedative, peripheral vasodilating, antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory, specific for treating tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and is customarily used to control the infamous "hot flashes" of menopause.

|278||Cumin, Black||Ranunculaceae||Nigella sativa (dg fo pf wp)||2013-05-22 00:00:00||80 each seeds in 8cc blocks||plant||15||Start indoors about six weeks before planting outdoors, or direct seed outdoors when soil is warm to touch. Recommended to start indoors in most areas to mature before fall frost||400 each|

|60||Pulsatilla; Wind Flower; Pasque Flower||Ranunculaceae||Anemone pulsatilla (dg fo pf wp)||30||Seed has short life span. Lay seed on its side in moist medium and expect germination in 30 to 90 days -- very slow going at first, which is typical with seed of plants that are themselves long-lived.||In the case of Pulsatilla, I have 15-year-old plants that are going strong. They don't spread very readily, but the clump enlarges every year, self-mulching with its own leaf detritus. Plant prefers full sun to part shade and dryish, well-drained soils. Thick bark mulches are a helpful adjunct.||sun or partial shade||well drained||30 each||Herbaceous perennial. Native to Europe. The plant is diminutive but brazen, sending up large, showy purple flowers early in the spring, before most plants are half awake, giving way to upright, feathery seedheads straight out of Dr. Suess.
Low doses of the fresh plant tincture are used to calm nervous disorders associated with menopause, PMS or insomnia.A classic low-dose botanical, the plant is acrid and should be treated with great respect.
