September 1st kicks off ginseng digging season. I've been out checking out some spots but seems like it'll be a tough find this year.
A few years ago, I planted a couple of seeds under my deck and one hardy one continues to grow and produce seeds year after year.
I have found quite a few so far this year, i would check them once a week. I had to mark where there are now the deer ate all the leaves off and the seeds were knocked off. I went ahead and planted the seeds but cant wait until Sept.1 I have quite a few spots to check also before then. Good luck
the ones i have found so far are around oak and poplar trees on flat ground and a little slope hillside but you really have to look hard as the deer seem to love the leaves on them and knock the berries off. like i said earlier i marked the ones i found so far so i can find them again in a few days
