TOPIC: Ground temp for ginseng germination

Ground temp for ginseng germination 2 years 8 months ago #35048

Is there a specific ground temp when ginseng starts to come up? I know morels start to pop when ground temps reach between 52-55 around here which is finally happening :woohoo: :woohoo:

Anyway I was just curious as im still waiting to see my first ginseng sprout, thought I would have some up by now.

Thanks in advance for any responses.

Not sure usually when dandelion start to seed ..turn white,or a week after my red maples leaf out here they come every year which have been 55-70 deg around here. My plants in middle Kentucky came up Sunday little ones first and now the 3 and 4 prong are popping up.
My plants in Virginia I was told started today
I hear some folks in Tennessee were up last week.
Morels popped up here last Thursday.

Welcome John B, and Sysbee to this forum!

Some of your Q's -many of them- can be answered in the Dr. Scott Person's book. It's sort of the grower's bible for many of us here. I'd look on Amazon.com for it, and it's likely you can find a good used on for less than the top retail.

American Ginseng: Green Gold is the book you are referring to? Thanks again.

Oh, you have some plants in VA? Nice! So, you think it's a little early to start scouting?
