Greencure,

If I read your plan correctly what you are proposing would be woods cultivated ginseng, not wild simulated. By tilling the soil and trucking in outside soil you are changing the environment substantially and the roots will reflect that in their growth and harvested appearance. Without the appearance of wild grown , the value of the roots is far less. Often less than the cost of growing it.
Ginseng requires a variety of trace nutrients that come from the trees it grows with also. Having only oaks and pines providing detritus you may find it necessary to add the nutrients chemically, which will also change the root.



I will not add any chemicals I will shred all leafs and spread them out I will only use organic additives that the laboratory tells me to use and I will not touch these for 6 or 8 years depending on how well I am doing

Post back with status updates after you get started. I'm very curious to see if a ginseng operation can get up and running in a non-native habitat area of the country.
