2019 Ginseng Prices

This is the 2019 Ginseng Prices page. It’s a place for diggers and buyers to make contacts and leave tips for each other. If you want to leave a comment for diggers or buyers, or have questions you want to ask from the folks in this field, feel free to use the comment section as your forum. All I ask is that you be respectful in your disagreements if you have any.

If you’d like to place an add to buy or sell anything ginseng related, see below for information about how to do that. Comments are entirely free always. The classifieds just give you the opportunity to post pics with it.


ginseng classifieds

List your roots or buying offers at Wild Ozark's Ginseng Prices page.
LIST MY ROOTS. Send pics of your roots, a description to say how many, how old, whether fresh or dried. Contact info should include your state, email addy, or phone number and name. First name is good enough. Have other ginseng-related things you’d like to advertise? That’s alright, too. Go here to place your ad.

Help with Identification

If you’re new to digging, you might want to double check the identity of the plants you’re planning to dig. I can’t tell you how many folks thought they had ‘tons’ of ginseng only to find out what they had was ‘tons’ of Virginia creeper.

Just so you know, I’m not a digger or a seller. I do sell ginseng and goldenseal seedlings to the local market in spring and bare root by mail order in fall.

Wild Ozark is the only certified ginseng nursery in Arkansas. Mostly, though, my interest in ginseng is in sharing the love I have for the fragile habitat these plants love to live in, in helping others be good stewards, and in offering information to those interested in re-establishing or identifying good habitat.

Leave a comment if you’re looking for a buyer/dealer, or have info on prices in your neck of the woods. Buyers, leave info on how to get in touch with you and a general location. If you’re a seasoned digger, share some wisdom with the newbies for how to keep this plant going for generations still to come:

I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Sit on your dry seng! Seng is drying up already for a short season. Buyers know this and say sell fast and sell fresh for their profit. Prices will be great for dry seng late in the season…
