BOYHUD17,

I have not done it yet but plan to next year after harvesting berries from my own seed producing bed (which I established this year).

In W. Scott Persons book there are plenty of details on how to stratify seeds.

A summarized version:

The common method of ageing seeds is called stratification and involves mixing the seeds with fine, moist sand and storing the mixture underground for a year in either a plastic or wooden container.

He gives lots more details...

If you are getting serious about growing seng and producing your own seed you should consider buying that book.

It is available on Amazon (link below) for around 16.00

Thanks man. I'll get that book. But ya i'm pretty serious about this whole ginseng business stuff. I mean, I still plan on goin to college and having an everyday job, but we have so much farm land and plenty of woodland. I figured why not do somethin where i can live off the land if anything happened to my job, plus i just love ginseng :) lol

And by the way i saw that video on youtube of billy diggin those big roots for your seed bed and I'de say they'd probably make you some good seeds lol
