How to Establish a Wild American Ginseng Colony?
So I have read alot about this plant and the value that it has. My plan is to establish a colony in the public park near me (this would considered guerrilla gardening). I would like to ultimately be able to sustainably harvest a portion of the plants when they mature in 10+ years. I am just not sure where to get seed or how to plant them. The park is mostly loaded with invasive species like amur honeysuckle, norway maple, autumn olive, and japanese honeysuckle. Deer are another problem.So I am not sure how I would deal with that. However the soil underneath is very dark and rich which I believe would be excellent for the ginseng. There is some American ginger and Solomans Seal growing in the area as well.
