Family: Ginseng (Araliaceae)
Hardy to Zones 4 to 8
Herbaceous perennial forest dweller native to Eastern North America. Traditional usage (TWM, Native American): stomach upset, lack of energy. A classic adaptogen. Cultivation: The best advice is simple advice. Find a shady area on your land (forest or shade garden) where there is good drainage, scrape the leaf mulch away, plant the seeds singly 6 inches apart and 1 inch deep, and cover back up with leaf mulch. This should be done with this STRATIFIED SEED that we offer, in the FALL OR EARLY WINTER. The seed we offer has been stratified for an entire year. You plant this seed in the fall and it will come up in the spring, pretty much without fail. We highly recommend this seed and encourage you to purchase it in good time and plant as soon as possible after receipt. More questions? E-mail us or read the “ginseng” chapter in our book “growing at-risk.”
