TOPIC: New Ginseng Nursery

New Ginseng Nursery 8 years 10 months ago #2786

I'm considering starting a private ginseng nursery on a small suburban plot to land I have...just down the street. It gets full sun. I'm wondering what's the most economical way to shade my future plants. I plan on getting good at this...buying some country land and planing them in the woods. I live in Amherst, NY, just north of Buffalo, NY. Any ideas, points of view would be great. I don't have the wooded land yet...so I'd like to get a nice crop of transplants ready so in say 4 years...I could give them a nice home. I'm looking towards a retirement income and homesteading farm life. Regards to all. Steve

Not sure on the size of this nursery,anyway your best bet maybe in acquiring used ginseng shade cloth. Surfin,sould help find what will fit your need. As for structural supports, used ware house racks work good, just paint them black, you can find them in bankrupt factory sales. There's a few of them around lately due to you southener's greed...L.O.L...?. I'd use the 80% shade cloth not the 75.

Buy Scott Persons' book on ginseng,it will instruct you on man made shade. It is not very hard to do but it may be expensive to start. Materials need to last 4 to 7 years.

Good luck.
