9781331692126: The American Journal of Pharmacy (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The American Journal of Pharmacy

During the past fifteen years I have been engaged in the cultivation of Belladonna along with other medicinal plants, and I have at all times found the cultivation of the plant profitable and most interesting. I find it to be the easiest of all the imported plants to cultivate, and, if a market could be found for the domestic drug, it would pay very well to cultivate it on a large scale. At first considerable difficulty was experienced in getting plants from the seed, due I think to two causes: (1) inferiority of the seeds imported from Europe, and (2) planting of the seeds too deep in the soil. I tried planting the seeds direct in the open, covering them with a slight mulch of straw, but found that only one out of every fifty seeds would germinate. I then planted the seeds under a cold cover in the early part of April, and found that over 75 per cent, came up. The young plants were transplanted after they had reached a height of about six inches directly to the open field about the middle of May, about 25 per cent, of the seedlings being lost by transplanting. The soil was well tilled and fertilized, it being a good garden soil and having been used for years for the cultivation of flowers and garden vegetables. The soil has to be tilled several times during the year and kept free of weeds. By the middle of June the plants reach the height of about 25 inches, and by the middle of July bear a large number of flowers. Two crops of leaves can be obtained in one season, the first about the end of July, the second the latter part of October.
