Stratified Ginseng seeds at jiovi® have been properly stored for 1 year.  Why is this important to you?  Most seeds available will not germinate until the second year in the ground.  These will germinate this next spring. Most will germinate and be growing in May.

We had great luck with these.  Planted in the fall, almost all germinated and grew this year!

Ginseng favors well-drained, humus-rich soil on north and east-facing slopes. Grow in 70%+ shade. Harvest roots in fall of 5th or 6th year. Stratified seeds are shipped.  Harvest may begin at the end of the third growing
season but the ginsenoside content increases dramatically between the fourth and fifth years. NOTES: Because this item is considered an endangered species, it cannot be shipped outside the US. Our seeds are not treated with Apron XL (Mefenoxam) or any other fungicide.  Packet:  1 oz @430 seeds.
