Stratified Ginseng Seed! We have sourced our seed from the same farm in Canada for over ten years, and they consistently provide quality, disease-free seeds. Ginseng has "live" seed, meaning that the seed respires and must be kept moist from the time you receive your seed until planting. Seeds will begin shipping in early September. The seeds you order this year MUST be planted this fall, as the seed will be ready to germinate naturally in the spring (we find that in the Northeast, this is typically in sometime in May). We store seed outdoors in moist, sterilized sand until shipment in order to minimize fungal pathogens and allow the embryo to develop naturally for proper germination. We are happy to provide planting instructions with every order, though we recommend you read The Practical Guide to Growing Ginseng by our late mentor Bob Beyfuss, as ginseng is a picky plant and has specific growing requirements. We have planted over 250 acres of ginseng over the years, and if you would like us to assess your land for ginseng growing potential or teach you how to grow this magical plant, send us an email and we can arrange a consultation.

Please click "Add a Note" when placing your order and let us know which month you'd prefer to recieve you seed (September or October). Keep in mind that the sooner you get your seed planted after shipment, the better. The longer your seed is stored, the higher the risk of fungal pathogens spreading throughout the seeds.
