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, from August through December.  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.”

Open Pollinated 10 g packet of seeds (Fresh, undried, stratified seed delivered moist.  Sow immediately upon receipt.)

There are about 120 seeds in a 10 g packet.

100g contains appx. 1200 seeds.

Note:  Ginseng seed not available internationally, due to CITES regulations.

    Question

    This amazing seed got lost in the packets of seeds I was planting last fall, and is now a year old. I’m guessing that it’s unusable?

    2022 A great year for growing Ginseng Seeds

    Thanks for the wonderful seeds. I winter-sowed my ginseng seeds here in Michigan and got a BUMPER CROP! And they transplanted well this Spring. I also planted some in the ground and put 1/4” wire mesh over the top to stop the squirrels and chipmunks etc from eating the seeds – that worked quite well too!
    Thanks again for GREAT seeds!

    Seed quality

    I received beautiful looking, stratified seed this fall and planted them shortly after they arrived. I am very excited to report the seedlings have begun to emerge and I couldn’t be more thrilled -thank you for producing such high quality seed – that can be hard to find with certain species!
