i dont know what all that means but if your back yard is shaded and well drained, ginseng will prolly grow there.

Rather then a soil test, you can look for other plants that will grow in the same areas as ginseng. Ie: Black and blue cohash, may apple, false sang, dolls eye, christmas fern, jack in the pulpit, and the list goes on. Is there a lot of grass growing there? What percent of shade area? Does it lay wet all summer? Good luck
