TOPIC: Starting to sprout here in Ohio

Re:Starting to sprout here in Ohio 5 years 7 months ago #17369

I'm envious of you all. I planted 4 pounds of seed last fall here in upstate NY and none of it is up yet. I have also checked on a few patches of mature wild plants and they too are still yet to emerge.

We finally got some rain after weeks of nothing but with high temps in the the low 50's and lows in the 30's every night, I'm not holding my breath to see any come up this week either.

Looks like I'll have to call an old longbeard into my patches on the opener next week. Make em gobble to remind the ginseng it's spring.lol

I got out and checked on this plant, and it finally made it up. I snapped a pic with my cell phone, but the old phone is acting up and I can't get it to save to the computer. It is a really nice four prong plant with one of the prongs havin 6 leaves (the other 3 have the normal 5 leaf pattern). The leaves are a little rough around the edges, but otherwise looks to be in good shape. I'd say that any ginseng that is going to emerge in my local area is up now. A lot of them have just came up in the last week though.

Whit - This was a big 4prong plant that I found while ginseng hunting with Billy in the mountains of KY. I've got it planted in a pretty good spot all by itself. I've also got a seed producing area that I tranplanted a lot of 3 and 4 prong plants last fall. I Checked on them the other day and they are doing really well so far...

I also planted 3/4 of a pound of stratified seed last fall and it came up good and is looking healthy thus far.

After waiting 7 months I must say that it was very pleasing to check on them and even more pleasing to see that they came up and were doing well:)
