Re:NEW to this!! 8 years 3 weeks ago #2717

hey kelly don't really know about the gypsum. they say it helps though. I don't do nothing because i have all the companion plants growing in my plots even wild seng grows already their so i figured the ground was already good enough. If i was u before i started adding stuff i would get a soil sample u may not need nothing.

thanks for all of the advice! I think that you are right I will get another soil sample done before I add anything else. I will try some plots this year with no gypsum and see how that goes, It is all a hobby for me right now until I learn more. Just to get it to grow is a BIG thrill for now. I hope one day to be able to plant my own seeds. I still like the small plots in differant areas just to see how it grows on the land. One of my areas I am sure was used to keep livestock Years ago a lot 30-50 years ago how do you think that will effect ginseng?

I have not posted here in some time, After some things that were being posted I gave it up. But this seems to be the best one for growing info.
I have not had a chance to plant this year yet, I seem to get better luck planting in early spring so far.B)

hi Kelly,
I am new one here. try to start growing ginseng in my wood as you did. bought some seeds here and ......
- don't know where to store? refrigerator?
- check the woods next to house: one section so bushes, but down the hill a lot of big tree and less bushes or weeds? do i need to till the ground too then make the bed? or just dig the small hole for seeds? how to know they come out next year? or
anything else to do for growing?
sorry if my question so dumb :P coz i am not mountaineer and not farmer either. just move to WV couple years ago. thanks

Store your seeds in the bottom drawer of your fridge. The sooner you plant them, the better.

I have over 40,000 plants growing and have had good success with raking the leaves back and breaking the surface of the soil with a Hand Cultivator. Then spread your seeds about 5 seeds per square foot. then lightly stomp down rhe bed with your boots. Rake leave back over bed. Have had about 90% germination rate with this.

Here is a link for cultivator: www.hound-dog.com/cultivator.htm#

Also here what my planting areas look like.
