Ginseng rootlets are a good alternative to planting
seed for those people that are interested in having a mature plant immediately.
Our medium and large rootlets will provide you with seed bearing plants
immediately. They also can provide a very attractive plant for those
individuals looking for something unique to plant this year. (Read
Ginseng Growing Instructions to determine the most suitable place to plant
ginseng.) The roots are also of harvestable size and can be harvested
and used the same year or left to grow for another growing season.
Rootlet Planting Instructions
Ginseng rootlets should be planted in the same areas
suitable for planting seed (Ginseng Growing Instructions). When planting
rootlets dig a trench or hole deep enough for the rootlet to be placed in
and cover with approximately 1/2" to 3/4" of ground. Pack the ground
firmly around the root. Using leaves or other mulch place a covering
of mulch over the ground to help protect the root during the winter months.
