Our stratified ginseng seeds are treated to ensure diseases free and ready to be planted. Fall-planted, stratified seed usually emerges in the following spring between April and June. One pound has approximatively 8000 seeds.
Stratified seed can be safely planted from late summer until the soil freezes in the fall. Since time of germination cannot be controlled effectively, it is often unsafe to delay planting of stratified seed until the second spring because weather or soil conditions may prevent seeding before germination begins. Spring seeding must be completed by the middle of April, or before dog-woods bloom.
When stratification of the seeds is complete, seed germination will proceed and usually cannot be delayed appreciably, even if the seeds are refrigerated. Germinating seeds are perishable and will be wasted if not planted at that time.
Please note: keep the stratified seeds slightly moist in a cool place while in storage before planting.
