This madder is only a few months old, in 2-3 years it will have covered all the ground and the roots will be ready to harvest that Autumn.
Madder seems to grow well in this area of France, where the summers are hot but not too dry. There has been a recent attempt to grow it in Provence which was abandoned, I think because of lack of water.
However in Holland where madder was grown traditionally, a new company was launched last month called Rubia. If you are looking for madder extract it is worth looking at their site.
