Also looking for seed of Ferula assa-foetida, invariably wrongly identified in botanical gardens it seems...

Horizon Herbs has it, and loads of other interesting seeds. I bought from them a few years ago, and had great germination rates. http://www.horizonherbs.com/product.asp?specific=328

I was told by a friend that the Horizon seeds are probably not the real thing...(I haven't tried or seen the seed myself).. Thanks anyway...

Any news on this subject? I'm seeking Ferula assa-foetida seed at the moment. Perhaps a source in Iran would be more fruitful. I do work with some Iranians...

Have the plants from Horizon grown enough to get an ID?
