Started planting berries from wild seed when I started hunting ginseng in the early 80s.
Started planting stratified seed in 98 or 99.
After that first year, I\"ve planted probably an average of six pounds a year. Some years more, some years less because of weather and time.
This year, I'll plant about seven pounds if the weather doesn't kill me in the next week or so.
BCastle Was your first planting a wild sim planting? If so can you tell us how many made it to a harvestable size? It doesn't seem like that many members on here have been planting for over ten years. If they have then I sure haven't seen any results posted. I know that conventional wisdom says 10% survival if you're lucky. I guess I'd just like to hear some actual figures from guys who actually planted wild sim plantings 8 or more years ago. If you see this perhaps you should start another thread. I'm not wanting to hijack this thread.
