When you run across the extremely rare ginseng root, which is called the "Emperors Root", that is shaped like a human body, where the head, arms, legs and the male sexual organ is pronounced. That is an emperor root, those single individual roots can bring as much as $10,000.00" (US)

Here's some pictures of some nice looking, Fresh Picked, "Glacial Gold" Ginseng

"SPRING PLANTING TIP'S"

Plant early, especially the further North you are.  This gives the seeds a chance to become climatically adapted to the environment that they are being planted in.  This also gives the seeds a chance to be absorbing the nutrients from the soil that they are going to be raised in.  When purchasing your seeds, be especially wary of seeds with dried out hulls.  The embryos may be alive, but your germination factor will be greatly reduced.   Naturally all of our seeds are float tested and decontaminated before shipment.  Quality must be number one.  Our future markets are going to demand it. 
Suggested commercial woods planting is about 40 Pounds to the Acre.  You should be realizing about 10 pounds of seed back for each pound planted in 4 years and about 10 pounds of roots for each pound of seed planted in 7 years.  If you take care of your plants you might do twice that.
We guarantee no dried out hulls.  The hull is what the embryo feeds on as it develops

"First Time Ever Offered"


Glacial Ginseng Co. is Pleased to Announce A Limited Supply of 3 Year Old Woods Grown "Glacial Gold" Wild Simulated Ginseng Roots.  These Are Ginseng Roots Are Freshly Dug by Hand and Are Ready For Immediate Transplanting.  These Ginseng Roots Are From One of Our Largest Growers and Have Never Had any Pesticides or Fertilizers Used On Them.  These are Smaller Roots, Which Is Just What The Export Market Wants.  These Ginseng Pants Will be Producing a Nice Small Seed Crop This Next Season.

"Glacial Gold"  
Ginseng  Seeds & Roots


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 somewhat inbred.  The growers have been replanting their own seeds for too many years.  The way to overcome this problem is to cross breed six or more different strains of seeds together. This will create a new Variety of Ginseng seeds.  Our goal is to cross breed the heartiest ginseng seed available and create a vibrant ginseng seed that is more tolerant of disease.

When you successfully blend 6 or more strains of a plant together , you come up with a new variety of plant and you have the right to name it.  This is what we have done with Our Ginseng Seeds.  Therefore We have named our Variety of Ginseng Seeds "Glacial Gold" Ginseng Seeds.  "Glacial Gold" is our trade-mark, it'd the brand of our Company, and it's a serious way to get these plants back to their original State.  So little cross-breeding  is being done.  The wild plants are so scarce and few and far between they're breeding amongst themselves.  Any unisexual plant or animal that inter-breeds within itself, creates a genetic clone.   Each succeeding generation is shortening the life span of the ginseng plant.  Plants that should be living 65 or 70 years we are lucky if we can get them to live to be 10 years old.

 Unisexual Plants, Like Ginseng, Do Not Adapt Well To Global or Local Weather Changes, This is One of The Reasons That Ginseng Remains on The Endangered Species List.   Ginseng is Primarily a Cold Weather Plant and is Native to The Northeast Section of North America.
When Growing Ginseng in Warmer Climates it is Advisable to Have The Ginseng Seeds Becoming Climatically Adapted to There New Environment As Early as Possible.

Ginseng Seeds Have a 18 Month Germination and Can Be Planted at Any Time During Germination.  The Ginseng Seeds are Normally Kept in Stratification Pits for The First 12 Months and Then Planted in The Fall.
Many Growers Will Keep Their Ginseng Seeds in The Stratification Pits For 17.5 Months and Plant in The Spring.  This Greatly Reduces Losses to Mice, Voles, Birds, Etc;

The Serious Ginseng Growers, You Would Do Well to Purchase Your "Glacial Gold" Ginseng Seeds Early.
Build Your Own Stratification Pit and Place It Out In The Woods That You Will Be Growing Your Ginseng In.
This Will Allow The Maxim Time For The Ginseng Seeds to Become Adapted to Their Environment.

Ginseng As A Business
by, Michael Hunter

The first thing that you are going to look at as a businessman is what kind of a return can I expect out of my money? If a pound of "Glacial Gold" ginseng seeds cost me $89.95 (US) and I can expect 35 pounds of ginseng roots back at the end of seven years. Well in today's market, that would be about $6,300 (US). Now if you're doing this on a reasonable scale, you could get some pretty serious money involved. Now when they are commercially growing ginseng seeds, they are planting it any where from 110 lbs. to 125 lbs. per acre. Well, their yield back isn't all that good, but they look at it from the point that they don't have to pay for their seeds. They're going to replant the same seeds, then they wonder why the product that they're growing only brings eighteen dollars per pound.

Now when they are commercially growing ginseng seeds, they are planting it any where from 110 lbs. to 125 lbs. per acre.  In The Woods We Plant At 40 pounds per acre.  


The sensible way to do this, depending on the acreage you have to work with, is start with one hundred pounds of  "Glacial Gold" ginseng seed and grow your own ginseng seeds. If you buy three year old rootlets, you'll be producing your own ginseng seeds next year. These are business type decisions that the individuals have to make for their own selves. Work with your consultants, look at what you are trying to achieve here. The equipment that I am using for planting this, which I will try and show you over the next few pages, isn't really big expensive equipment. I use that little 1952 Ford tractor of mine, I paid $2,500 (US) for it. I paid $450 (US) for the disk that is behind it. That's an extremely efficient way to make beds. Now the seeder, that got expensive, that cost $1,700 (US). But you get a real nice, uniform distribution of your seed with it. This season I'm going to put the seeder right up on top of the disk. I think that I will get a better seed bed, that disk rides pretty high and pretty light. Then I could actually be disking and planting at the same time, and the seeder doubles up as a fertilizer. You can regulate the flow to it to accommodate literally any size seeds or any size of dry type material.

At any rate, lay your woods out, figure your light, keep your southwest corner real well shaded. These plants don't like to get real warm in the afternoons. Once you've got your beds in, and laid out, about two weeks prior to planting, you want to treat your rows with Round Up and literally kill back the vegetation in there. At the same time, you want to treat for slugs. We had an El Nino last year and this caused a slug manifestation that just was totally unrealistic. The slugs work just below the surface. They can be handled with numerous pesticide controls. If you don't want to go that route with them, you can actually trap them out through the course of your planting season, if you take and put some squares of aluminum or a lightweight sheet metal, anything along those lines. Lay it down on the surface of the beds, and the slugs will be drawn to the metal and adhere themselves to the bottom of it. You can just walk through your beds and pick up your pieces of metal, scrape the slugs off into a bucket, they make excellent fish bait.

Anyway, growing ginseng is kind of like playing high stakes poker. You always seem to come up with one of two things; a busted flush or a royal flush. Ginseng seems to be the same way, you have to make it big or you don't make it at all. It takes some nerve. It's going to take a lot of effort on our grower's part to bring our crop up to where we're growing it on a compatible level with corn. Now all of the " Glacial Gold" ginseng seeds that my company is selling, we keep track of everything. Even the soil that it came out of, to have an idea what the pH level was.

I don't believe that some of the farmers have ever checked their soil in their woods.  If they have checked it, "why if it's that way one place on  farm, I guess it's the same on the rest". You can buy soil testing kits at your local farm supply store. Do your research, read some good books, and talk to some consultants.

The balancing of the light is very important. Ginseng has to have at least 4 hours of direct, slightly oscillating light, and as the days get longer, it needs more shade. Some of the things that you can look at as you're utilizing more and more of your acreage, as you get over towards the west or southwest side, put some artificial shade up, if needed. If you have some areas in the woods that need shade, just erect some posts, take some baling twine and tie some cross members. Then lay some brush up over these more open areas. An abundance of material is available right there in your woods that can be used for this type of thing. Your forestry consultants will show you the type of thinning that should be being done in your woods. Proper thinning needs to be done to produce a really good crop of timber and ginseng.

Keeping in mind, if and when you are considering trying Glacial Gold Ginseng  Co. 
"New Concept" of blending 2 yr. old Roots with our "Glacial Gold" Ginseng Seeds  --- We and you, are, and will be balancing our forests in the process!!! You will be taking - where and when needed - older mature trees at prime time, to give growing space to the new and younger generation of trees.  Selecting only what should be harvested at present, to give the correct conditions for your ginseng crop. Also, keep in mind, Woods Grown Ginseng far out surpasses field cultivated ginseng in value and ginsitis levels.

By harvesting your mature trees,  purchasing and planting  3yr. old "Glacial Gold" Ginseng seeds and roots.  This is a means of no money out of your pocket now -- and will start bringing money into your pocket in the very near future. Your 3 yr. old Glacial Gold Roots will produce a good seed crop the next fall.  The "Glacial Gold" Ginseng Seeds  will start producing a seed crop of top notch seeds in 4 yrs.   Leaving your forest as is, will do nothing and can stunt the growth  of your young trees.  
PLUS - You will have a balanced forest WITH a ginseng crop  of a higher value then the trees you removed for your initial investment!!!  Now - I believe that isn't only smart - It is investing common sense for our next generation and for generations to come!!!  Also remember, you will have a yearly seed crop.  I wish all forest were so lucky, as to have owners like you, setting the example!  Balancing our forest simply makes good sense and you are THE answer to saving an endanger species  of not only ginseng, but of our great forests.   If we don't take care of our forests, who will??
