So I just received several mandrake seeds and I am looking to grow them. I have fair horticultural knowledge and I have been doing research on the interwebs but I thought I would also reach out here to see if any of you have any tips on growing mandrake. I live in western Oregon in the United States. The weather is generally mild and on the wet side. We are a zone 8. I believe they need to be stratified and that the plant likes cool, moist conditions in full sun to partial shade.
Have you started mandrake from seed?
I'd also enjoy hearing your stories about the folklore of the mandrake and its root. Main de Gloire?
