Re:Growing ginseng in Florida 3 Years, 6 Months ago  
I would say it would be very difficult to say the least. This may sound crazy but the only way it might work is if you were to dig up you patch every Sept and place the roots in the refrigerator until March of the following year. Then in mid March re-transplant them into your ginseng garden. You will need to read up on soil requirements and shade requirements as well as disease and moisture (Rain or watering) needs associated with ginseng. This may be possible if you have a small ginseng garden. However, anything large would require an extensive amount of time and labor.
Good luck.

Looked around online a bit and see some folks reporting some success at growing ginseng in northern florida.

Some articles suggest zones 3-7 and others 3-8. Wildgrown.com has a article that suggest 3-8.

The text below is from the article/url included below it:

Experts suggest that areas with 50 below-freezing days a year are at the southernmost ginseng growing zone.

Below is one from Univeristy of Florida.

Reports indicate ginseng roots often decay when attempts are made to grow them under warm, humid Florida summer conditions.

Good Luck !
