"VISUAL SITE "
EVALUATIONS

WITH A CAMERA PHONE

A  service being offered by Glacial Ginseng Company is a visual site evaluation from pictures taken with a camera.   A question that I am being asked is "do I have a good site for growing ginseng?" one picture is worth a thousand words, and so what I am proposing to do is to have you go to your woods and starting in the southwest corner, walk towards the northeast corner, at about 2:00 in the afternoon. 

Take pictures to your left and to your right as you walk.  The number of pictures is kind of up to you and depends on how big a piece of land you are working with, shoot up the rest of the film that is in your camera, a half a dozen good pictures on a ten acre woods should give me an idea of what your site is like.  Adjust the number of pictures by the size of your woods.   Have someone stand about 20 yards away and try to get the bottom of their feet just nicely in the picture.  Take some pictures of some of the places that you think ginseng might do well in and I will evaluate those. 

  After evaluation of your pictures and judging from the shade, etc. I will promptly mail you a report that will have my suggestions as to the light requirements and other improvements that you might do to your site, that would improve your chances for successfully growing ginseng, (of course, I will also tell you if your site is not suitable for ginseng growing).

Enclose a check or money order for $49.95 (US) made out to Glacial Ginseng Co.  I will send you a personally written report of my evaluation of your site, along with a copy of my book, "Ginseng Grower's Guide" a $9.95 value.

Ginseng is a unisexual plant, and when trying to develop a top quality seed, the rules are a little different.  The problem is that the majority of the ginseng seeds on the market are some what inbred.  The growers have not been handling their ginseng seeds like they do their corn seed.  The way to overcome this problem is to cross breed different strains of ginseng seeds together. This will create a new strain of Ginseng seeds.  It is the object of Glacial Ginseng Company to gather the very best seed available, by going right to the growers and seeing the plants that they come from.   The Ginseng seeds that are produced from these select crossbreeds will be known as "Glacial Gold Ginseng Seeds" and should prove to be just outstanding plants.

The continued cross breeding of these ginseng seeds will in time reproduce the true natural ginseng plant. Ginseng plants will start producing seeds  in the second year and reach good marketability in 7 years. They can have a life span of 60 to70 years.  I always let the first three years of seeds go back, they seem to have a real strong reproductive rate as younger plants.  These plants will go on to replace the weaker plants that nature will thin out.  In your fourth year you will generally go into full size seed pods.  For the next five to six years you will have some outstanding Ginseng Seeds.  After the tenth year they can start to become inbred again.  If you continue to add new stains of Ginseng seeds your beds can be productive for many generations to come.
The seeds that we have for this spring planting are just some of the most outstanding seeds that I’ve had the opportunity to handle. We’ve been working on a new stratification process over here, kind of a spin off on the work that we’ve been doing on growing ginseng south of the equator. We know that ginseng has an 18 month germination period, creating the necessity to stratify these seeds for one year prior to planting. The key to the germination is abrupt temperature changes such as you would find at the spring of the year under natural conditions. As the snow starts to melt in the spring, temperature changing radically triggers the germination of the seeds.
We do have a new process for handling ginseng seeds to increase not only the germination factor but to genetically crossbreed back to the original plant. We can get into the little sister’s effect. I’ve got some pictures showing where these little seedlings have come up under 3 year old plantings, and these were cross-bred seeds, so the genetic pattern in those young ones coming up is already there. Ginseng is a unisexual plant that can have 2 to 3 seeds in a single pod, all three can have different fathers and yet the genetic pattern of all the seeds are being taken up and become a part of the genetic pattern of the plant itself. The first generation seeds are really good, and by the time you’ve reached the fourth generation, your weaker seeds have died back, and your stronger strain seeds, the more natural type plants, have come forward. You should wind up in four years time with almost 100% yield and maybe plus.

Keep your seed beds close in. Don’t encourage large roots, the market doesn’t want that. There has to be a constant balance between the commercial aspects and the wild ginseng, so that we don’t harvest our wild totally out of existence. The whole purpose of publicizing the facts about the germination and stratification processes that we’re using here is to encourage it to be used through the industry, so that we can not only reestablish an endangered species into the natural habitat within my lifetime, we can go on to make it universally available for its medicinal purposes to the entire world.
We don’t know where all this plant will grow.  We know it’s basically a colder weather, higher climate type plant, and it likes mineralized soils, such as we find on the ancient glacial deposits here in southern Michigan, northern Wisconsin, on into Minnesota. Similar soils are into the Carolinas and mountainous regions of Kentucky and Tennessee. What the ginsenosides level of these plants will be we don’t yet know.   We encourage feedback from all our growers. We need commercial growers out here that have the appropriate suitable sites. If you think your site is suitable, send us up a picture or two. We’ll e-mail you back an opinion.

 

Our Ginseng seeds are washed, float tested and decontaminated prior to packaging. The individual portions of seeds are wrapped in cheese cloth while still moist, placed inside an appropriate sized plastic baggie and sealed. This during normal shipment starts your germination right there. These seeds have always been in a closely controlled environment, never really subject to frequent temperature variations. This is a part of our continued stratification process that we have developed here at Glacial Ginseng through our research. When these packets are sealed moist, it traps the moisture within the plastic bag.
When you receive your shipments at your home, place it in your refrigerator. You’re giving cool steady environments, you’re not exposed to radical changes. You can watch these seeds germinate your own self, from the time you get them, you will see them develop. All you really have to do is to turn the package over once in a while.  The constant temperature will let the embryo develop slowly. They start germination during shipment inside of those bags. Leave them sealed. When you get ready to plant, your optimum time to plant is between the first of March and the 15th of April. Seeds planted in this time period should yield maximum yields. They should really start to be just indexing.

As spring progresses and the thawing cycles begin, it triggers the germination within the ginseng seed. Spring planting will many times yield better results than fall planting. Your planting window is much briefer and Mother Nature is very much in charge. You can plant anytime from the 15th of February to the 15th of April. Ginseng normally comes up around the 15th of April. It takes from four to six weeks for the plants to come up after planting.

Generally ginseng is a low maintenance crop. Proper pH is very important, 5.5 to 6.0 is best.

Your local feed mill or lawn and garden supply can recommend what is best for any problems you may have. They might even test the soil for you (test kits are available for you to use)!

Ginseng is crop #70 to the people who run the supply places.

If you follow the recommendations for growing potatoes in your area then you will be on the right path.

Spraying is necessary during April and May, about every ten days while the seedlings are coming up. After that you need to spray about every three weeks until the plants go dormant in late September. I blend coyote urine in with my spray. This really keeps the deer and other wildlife out of your beds. Deer do not like to eat ginseng, but their sharp hooves can do some serious damage to your plants.

One Pound "Glacial Gold" Ginseng Seed Kit
$99.95
Includes everything you need to start growing your own Ginseng: One Pound (
Appo. 7,000 Seeds) of Stratified Genetically Cross Bred Ginseng Seeds, Including Woods Grown, "Ginseng Growers Guide" by, Michael Hunter, One Soil Testing Kit, Performs 10 Tests for Proper PH (Proper PH for Ginseng is 5.5 to 6.5) and 4 Survey Flags (These Metal Survey Flags Draw Static Electricity During Storms and this releases the Nitrogen Trapped in The Decomposing Forest Floor).   Should be Planted on about 4,400 square feet.

Ginseng is susceptible to Alternaria Blight, Phytophthora Leaf Blight and Phytophthora Root Rot. As a precautionary measure, from the start, I have been blending Ridomil with my Manzate2OO DL.  I use a good emulsifier. I have had some awful nice, healthy plants. Stay on top of it, get out there and check these plants periodically. The problem with ginseng is if it develops a problem, it can develop it in a hurry. You need periodic checks. The second you find something wrong with your plants, do something about it!  These things can multiply! Ginseng needs some spray and we know what works good for them. Especially in the first year's growth, you have to almost "baby-sit" them. After the first year, it is an entirely different situation.

Ginseng does not always come up every year. It is a perennial plant. Sometimes they come up one year and don't come up at all the next year. These beds that I have been working on, I am seeing actually new seedlings coming up with the two and three year old plants ... These are seeds that did not germinate the first year. The roots are the same way. Some of the old timers tell me that ginseng can go two, or even three years, before it will come back up again.

Do not hesitate to contact your local college, they have some real good extension services. You can learn from a book and you can learn out in the field.

These books can shortcut your education, what I am trying to do is keep you away from some of the real serious problems that we've got in ginseng. My own product that we label is 100% woods grown. I have many people who have used my product, happily coming back and paying $23.95 for another bottle. That's quality. The other products on the market, are working with low ignites level, only four or five percent of ignites.

Really good plants will be in the fifteen to eighteen percent levels. How they test for levels gets a little complicated. An old test that my dad taught me as a young man is you take a root, snap off the end, taste it with the tip of your tongue. When it's real bitter, that is good ginseng. After you have tasted different types of ginseng, you get where you can tell whether it is good ginseng or not. Do the same thing with your commercial capsules and take a taste with the tip of your tongue.

If you have good ginseng and drop a small piece into a bottle of beer, the alcohol will release the ginsitis and cause the beer to foam. If you put a small piece into a cup of coffee you can taste the bitterness. Break up a capsule, the contents should do the same thing. No foam means low ginsitis levels. Heat or alcohol will release the ginsitis in ginseng.

"Free Visual Site "
Evaluations
With A  Camera 

A  service being offered by Glacial Ginseng Company is a visual site evaluation from pictures taken with a camera.   A question that I am being asked is "do I have a good site for growing ginseng?" one picture is worth a thousand words, and so what I am proposing to do is to have you go to your woods and starting in the southwest corner, walk towards the northeast corner, at about 2:00 in the afternoon. 

Take pictures to your left and to your right as you walk.  The number of pictures is kind of up to you and depends on how big a piece of land you are working with, shoot up the rest of the film that is in your camera, a half a dozen good pictures on a ten acre woods should give me an idea of what your site is like.  Adjust the number of pictures by the size of your woods.   Have someone stand about 20 yards away and try to get the bottom of their feet just nicely in the picture.  Take some pictures of some of the places that you think ginseng might do well in and I will evaluate those. 
wpe19.jpg (55095 bytes) wpe18.jpg (50157 bytes)
After evaluation of your pictures and judging from the shade, etc. I will promptly mail you a report that will have my suggestions as to the light requirements and other improvements that you might do to your site, that would improve your chances for successfully growing ginseng, (of course, I will also tell you if your site is not suitable for ginseng growing).

Ginseng berry extract shows promise for Diabetes, Obesity.

An extract from the ginseng berry shows real promise in treating diabetes and obesity, reports a research team from the University of Chicago's Tang Center for Herbal Medicine Research. In the June issue of the journal Diabetes, they show that the extract completely normalized blood glucose levels, improved sensitivity to insulin, lowered cholesterol levels, and decreased weight by reducing appetite and increasing activity levels in mice bred to develop diabetes.

Grow Your Own.
We continue to have emails asking about the ginseng berry pulp powder; our best information at this point is that the best to get the berries is to grow your own  Three Year Old "Glacial Gold" Rootlets Planted This Spring Will Produce Seeds and Pulp This Fall.  Course look at it this way, you have your own supply of the berry pulp (just separate it from the seeds and dry in your home dehydrator) and you have the money from selling your seeds or you can plant them and raise more "Glacial Gold" Ginseng. 

Growers Tip; 

by Michael Hunter 
Owner of Glacial Ginseng Co.
1 Bushel of Ginseng Berries Weights Appo. 65 Pounds and Will Produce 8 Pounds of Ginseng Seed.  It Takes 8 Pounds Of Ginseng Berry Pulp To Produce 1 Pound Of Dried Ginseng Berry Powder and 10 Pounds of Dried Ginseng Berry Powder To Make 1 Pound Of Dried Ginseng Berry Extract.  Every 100 Ginseng Plants Should Produce 1 Pound Ginseng Seeds.
