Ginseng is an Endangered Species. 

What little that is left in the Wild is Growing in such Isolation, that the Ginseng Plants have become inbred.  Ginseng is a Unisexual Plant. 
It can Reproduce With or Without Sex, when this happens With Out Sex You Get Genetic Clones.
This Depletes The Genetic Blue Print and Shortens the Life Span of the Ginseng Plant . 

Unisexual Type Plants and Animals Do Not Adapt Well To Global Weather Changes. 
By Planting Genetically Cross Bred
"Glacial Gold" Ginseng Seeds in Wooded Areas and Amidst Wild Ginseng, We are Reestablishing an Endangered Species in its Natural Environment. 
We Need To Learn How To Grow Ginseng in Warmer Climates While We Still Have The Time.

Been thinking about what Dad told me years ago
about hunting wild ginseng and sweet spots. You walk in on one of them, you can just feel it there, but the deer trails have a tendency to go from one of these sweet spots to another if you follow them along. Of course, hunting for wild ginseng along deer trails is an old timers trick, but when the deer get to these sweets spots, they’re looking for the ginseng berries to eat them. Well, they eat the berries, but the seeds pass right through the deer, consequently the Deer are doing some real nice work for us.

"Our Family"  Has Been in the Ginseng Business for 195 Years.
Ginseng has been in our family for many generations. It began with my great-great-great Grandfather who, in 1812, married a Seneca Chieftain's daughter and became one of Michigan's pioneers in the Ginseng business.
He worked for the J. J. Astor Fur Co., out of Fort Detroit.
Harold G. Hunter, my father, was a Ginseng Dealer for over 50 years. All of the local gatherers used to bring their Ginseng to him, and he would market it for them. I am trying to follow his foot steps .

Stratifying Your Own 
"Glacial Gold"
Ginseng Seeds
by, Michael Hunter

Ginseng is a Unisexual Plant.   Unisexual Type Plants and Animals 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. Ginseng's native range is the upper north east of the north American continent.  Ginseng is an endangered species, and with every ginseng seed order that I send, I am doing something about it.   Join me in watching our Ginseng Plants grow, while we practice Good Forestry and Try to balance man and nature.

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.

This is a very important point for Ginseng Growers, Especially for Growers in Warmer Climates.  What You should be doing is stratifying Your Ginseng seeds in your own Forest.  The more time that these seed have to become climatically adapted to there new environment the higher you germination rate is going to be.  Ginseng seeds take 18 months to germinate, the more of this time spent in your woods, the better your changes of Success.  During Peak Planting Times Seeds can and do get Scarce.

We don’t know where all this plant will grow,
We know it’s basically a colder weather, higher climate type plant, 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 know these answers yet, we encourage feedback from all our growers, we need commercial growers out here that have the appropriate suitable sites. Do you think your site is suitable, send us up a picture or two. We’ll e-mail you back an opinion

Careful site selection is essential for ginseng cultivation.
Ginseng requires a freely-draining soil, low humidity and up to 65% shade.  A prolonged cold stratification period is essential for both shoot emergence and seed germination in the spring, although low temperature requirements may be met artificially by refrigeration of seed prior to sowing.
Keep your seed beds close in. Don’t encourage large roots, the market doesn’t want that. This has to be a constant balance between the commercial aspects of it 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 be encouraged to be used through the industry by 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.

If we’ll go back out and plant these seeds into the wild we will reestablish it in its natural environment, plus at the same time promoting an overall good business structure for a cottage industry. A product that’s been in demand since its discovery in this part of the world in 1740. Ginseng was One of the first cash crops exported out of the North American Hemisphere. It’s had an ongoing successful market and it will continue to have an ongoing successful market. We have to raise a crop that’s what the market is looking for, not only in appearance, but also in potency.

To increase not only the germination factor but to create back to the original plant.   By placing these seeds in your refrigerator, you’ve created the same environment as a naturally mild winter in its original habitat. You’re germination yield should be extremely good. This a new way of handling these seeds to get some germination out of it. Maintaining constant temperature, controlled environment, just triggering its response about 6 weeks ahead of planting, 8 weeks ahead of planting, 10 weeks. We are packaging these seeds and have them available, whether they’re with us or whether they’re with you, they’re already developing. At whatever stage that you buy them from now until we put out the sold out sign.

Once we place these seeds into their plastic containers, we begin their pre-germination cycle, actually triggering these plants to germinate. Recommended about 4 weeks in pre-incubation period for fall planting, 8 to 10 weeks, 12 weeks for spring planting. Recommended period is approximately three months for spring planting. two months. we’ll make that one balance. But from now until the first of March these seeds should be in the bags. We’re plenty early yet so it wouldn’t make any difference. Can be stored for 2 to 3 months. the longer the better, the embryo will develop slower and thus discouraging too rapid a growth which many times can cause the plants to grow out as they call it in the trade. They literally do their entire life cycle and just wither and die. This is where they haven’t had the proper incubation period prior to the spring planting. All of our seeds are packaged blended with sand prior to shipment.
