Growing Instructions for the Asian Ginseng

Asian ginseng seeds have a period of dormancy and need to be stratified to break their dormancy. These seeds have already been stratified so they do not need to be refrigerated to break their dormancy. The seeds can be grown in pots or sown on the ground in the spring, summer or fall. 1. Ginseng grows in loamy, clay or sandy soil. Put some potting soil in a container. 2. Sow the seeds ¼-1/2 inch deep. 3. Keep the soil moist, but not soaking wet, until the ginseng seeds germinate. The seeds will not germinate if the soil dries out. 4. Water the pot regularly so that the soil is moist but not wet. 5. The seedlings can be transplanted when they are a few inches tall.
