Really Nice Two Year Old
Ginseng Planted In A Hard Maple Woods

You need to control your shade to seventy percent. Ginseng likes to have exposure to the morning sun, but it needs to be in shade by 1:00 p.m., as ginseng likes cool afternoons. Southwest corners of woods should be highly shaded to help keep ginseng plants cool in the late afternoon.

You can tell where the light is right in your woods by studying the undergrowth. Too much vegetation means too much sun, and ginseng will not grow there. You might clear out this area and build some artificial shade.
No undergrowth means not enough sun, and ginseng will not grow there. Ginseng needs 4 hours of direct oscillating sunlight.

Shade and other Site Considerations

Foreign Credit Cards Are Accepted

Ginseng likes potassium; bone meal is an excellent source and is available at your local farm or garden store.

Ginseng likes nitrogen. Decomposed leaf matter is a nice source of nitrogen. You should put small (thirty inch) survey rods in your beds,
about twelve feet apart. During storms, static electricity is attracted to the rods. This releases nitrogen. Ginseng loves it.

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 ginsenocide 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.

Bed preparation can be elaborate or simple. Removing the underbrush and lower plant growth will make it easier to plant, mulch and harvest ginseng. Use approved herbicides to kill small growth. Then remove brush and undergrowth that would be a problem when planting and harvesting. Keep the beds six feet wide and insure enough space to reach all weeds and the plants from both sides. Work your beds from drainage ditches.

Undergrowth needs to be cleared to improve air circulation, to reduce competition and to allow room to till .  Weeds need to be eliminated. A herbicide should be sprayed on your site about two weeks prior to planting. Round-Up works good here.  As part of your site preparation you should consider the balance of light in the woods.  If you are going to utilize the woods, you need a good forestry program.

For goodness sake, plan your plantation in advance! Allow yourself time, not only to get the merchantable timber out of the way, but get the firewood out of the way so that you have a clean site. Remove all the downed stuff. You need a good clean site to work with.

Get started with a hybrid seed patch first. About ninety percent of the woods that I have walked into, I could go over to the east side and I could find a place in there that with a minimal amount of work would be a good site for an initial seed bed. Those plants would then be up and growing for you, leaving time to balance your woods, work on the programs, etc.

This does not free up the capital that is involved in a commercial venture immediately, but growing ginseng should be a long term venture. It does take a certain amount of commitment, but it is not that difficult a plant to grow. It is not all that easy, either. If you approach growing ginseng as a way to get rich quick overnight, you ought to think a second time about planting it. You can make a lot of money in the ginseng business, but common sense is what will get you there faster.

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.

"Planting Tips"

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. 

Maintenance

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)!

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 "Glacial Gold" ginseng 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.

Ginseng is susceptible to Alternaria Blight, Phytophthora Leaf Blight and Phytophthora Root Rot. As a precautionary measure, from the start, I had been using Manzate2OO DL by Dupont. They no longer make this.  I have found that what they are using for potatoes, works well for ginseng.  It treats the leaves and then goes down to treat the roots.   I use a good emulsifier, if you don't have any, liquid dish soap will do.  This helps the spray stay on the leaves longer.   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  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 (US) for another bottle. That's quality. The other products on the market are working with low ginsitis level, only four or five percent of ginsitis.

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.

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)

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

  The "Ginseng Growers Guide" by, Michael Hunter,  Contains Many Helpful Tips, about Site Preparation and Planting Woods Grown Ginseng by Hand.

"Growers Tips" From The "Ginseng Growers Guide"

Undergrowth needs to be cleared to improve air circulation, to reduce competition and to allow room to till .  Weeds need to be eliminated. A herbicide should be sprayed on your site about four weeks prior to planting.  Round-Up works good here.  As part of your site preparation you should consider the balance of light in the woods.  If you are going to utilize the woods, you need a good forestry program.

About ninety percent of the woods that I have walked into, I could go over to the east side and I could find a place in there that with a minimal amount of work would be a good site for an initial seed bed. Those plants would then be up and growing for you, leaving time to balance your woods, work on soil and lighting requirements, etc.
