I have saved back some wild roots I dug this year that I plan on planting in a tilled bed for long term seed production. I was wondering if anyone knows if seed from wild plants is better than seed from plants that have been intensively cultivated? I am planting in the wild simulated method. It seems to me that wild seeds would be hardier, less susceptible to getting disease, and eventually produce a better root faster, but I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience and/or opinions about this. I guess my dilemma is I could dry down my wild roots, and then use the money to buy more cultivated roots than I have wild roots, because cultivated roots are much cheaper. Or I could plant my wild roots for seed production. I am from Minnesota and I am just getting started planting ginseng. I planted about 2lbs last year which came up very well and I plan on planting around 3lbs this year, along with some rootlets.
