Product Description

Ginseng grows naturally in the Eastern half of the United States. Basically along and east of the Mississippi river. In southern range it is limited due to cold required to break dormancy. Ginseng cannot be grown in direct sunlight. 70% to 80% shade is ideal. In selecting a site, a natural woods works very nice, but must have at least a slight slope to avoid sitting water. Best to plant at the top of a hill or on the side of a hill and not at the low end of the hill. A woods with a mix of different types of trees is ideal. The plants can also be grown right in your own yard, but it must be a shady location. Rich, well drained soil on a slight slope is ideal. Ginseng is known to grow in a variety of soils. If other plants grow well, Ginseng will too. Ginseng likes moisture, but hates wetness. A low line area may cause root rot.

the seeds will not grow If you just shove them in the soil. place them on a wet paper towel and fold over the top. keep them in a dark place and you will have sprouts in about a week. when the sprouts are well developed place the root in soil and the sprout out and within two weeks I have four to five leaves on each plant and they are growing fine. keep them In cool shady place. it has been in the forties at nignt and 70s in the day and they are doing fine outside. if yoy cant do that keep them cool at night and let them warm in the day they will do fine if you do it this way . if you just shove them into the soil you will be disapointed

The price was reasonable and I thought, "I should try this."

I have a spot in a clearing of forest, out past the bee hives, where I have Elephant Garlic growing like a wild plant cluster. That's the area where I decided to put the Ginseng. I bought four packages of 25 seeds.

When the seeds arrived in their tiny plastic ziplock bags, I set them on my desk because I was too busy with animals to dedicate the time to them. But the next time I looked at them, they were sprouting in the bag. There was little doubt that I was going to have Ginseng plants!

I took them to the forest and turned them loose. If they don't do well, it won't be because the seed was not good and ready to go!

I got 0% germination with my seeds. I didn't waste time looking for a refund...but be prepared to be unsatisfied if you try this product.
