I do hope these plants bring back some of the joy you might have lost when your Mother passed. You know she's got to be a part of what brings joy to you.
I have seen the great pics of ginseng plants from New York State and I wonder what is in that soil that causes them to have such beautiful, full berry pods. In the mountains where I grow so much seng it is not unusual to see 2 and 3 year olds bearing ripe berries , but it is almost impossible to find a mature plant with a full pod of berries and those you showed all seem to be on their way to being extremely nice. My congratulations. I have to think that is your Mom smiling at you.
Hugh i know my mother will always b with me part of me is her n she will b in my heart forever. Thxs
Most of these big plants r in three types of soil. One is dark, rich,soft. You will slide down the slope if ur not careful. Two is even better than the first still the nice dark dirt but is mixed with a fine white gravel reminds me of vermiculite. Third is the best dark rich soil in large rocks usually from slides it seems the open spaces in the rocks n great dirt really allow them to get huge.
My condolences as well Hobbler, hang in there buddy.
Always great to see your NY seng. Awesome soil makes awesome seng. Love seeing all those companion plants too. Just looks like perfect ginseng habitat.
Are you allowed to harvest seed in NY? Would love to have about 50 seeds to plant here in Ohio to see how they do and to get some of those great genetics on my seng spots.
Very impressive looking gensing. I checked on a few yesterday and my berries are still as green as a crayon. Looks like I will have to wait another week or so before I start digging so the berries will be ripe and ready to replant. Our season opens the 1st of Sept. in east Tennessee but how can anyone dig with the berries still green. Oh well, I can wait.
