TOPIC: Illinois ginseng

Illinois ginseng 2 years 5 months ago #35706

A few wild simulated plants planted in low ground with the nettles and the jewel weed. They are doing very well here.

Hello sang.ocd
Good looking plants there. You'll be into berries before you know it.
One word of caution. I see grass with seed pods growing in that first picture. You've got to get that out of there. If that picture is recent, go out and clip those seed tops off and throw them somewhere away from your patch. Sometime soon when you can, see if you can dig or pull up those clumps of grass growing in you beds. That grass can quickly overtake your ginseng patch. I suspect you have quite a bit of sunlight getting in to that area. In the long run your plants will benefit from doing this. The second picture looks perfect.

Sorry I wanted to post some more wild simulated, but I couldn't get them resized to post. So here's some 2 year old.

Thanks Hugh. That first picture was taken about a week ago. It's in a hollow where I have about half acre of wild simulated from 6 yrs - 13 yrs old. It is weedy, mostly nettles and with the weeds it seems to help keep the deer from topping them. But I might take your advice and pull some grass. I had pictures from today, but couldn't get them to resize. sand.ocd

I'm not too far from you. I sold a few roots to Darwin in the last few years. Glad your patch is looking good too. sand.ocd
