Ginseng Seedlings & Companion Plants for Habitat Restoration

The Wild Ozark™ Ginseng Nursery specializes in wild-simulated American ginseng and ethically propagated companion plants for ginseng habitat restoration or creation. We’re the only (that I know of) certified American ginseng nursery in Arkansas.

The plants are available  at the following locations:

  • Tuesdays at the Huntsville (AR) Farmer’s Market
  • Saturdays at the Downtown Rogers (AR) Farmer’s Market
  • Pick-up at the Ginseng Nursery in Kingston, AR

Email me ([email protected]) for more information on any of these locations.

Medicinal and Woodland Plants.

Potted plants are available only to local or on-site buyers. Bare root plants can be shipped from October through November. I’ll be adding more to the list as I get the shop listings ready. Most of these are native to the Ozarks but a few are medicinals that I like to grow and use on the homestead.

We also carry some non-native varieties, many of which are introduced and naturalized during the early settlement of our area. I usually avoid those that have become invasive (like Japanese Honeysuckle, for example). And we have books and other information sources with lots of pictures of plants on our website free for the browsing (use the menu links above).

Interested in Establishing a Ginseng Habitat?

You might like our “Habitat in a Pot”. It’s a collection of some of the companions and a 3 yr or older ginseng plant. The older the ginseng, the more expensive the collection.

Our latest creation is a ginseng habitat in a pot! A 3-year old American ginseng with a handful of companions.
A ginseng habitat in a pot! This one includes a 3-year old American ginseng with a handful of companions for $75. Available only for local pickup at the nursery, or the Rogers Downtown Farmers Market on Saturdays or the Huntsville Farmers Market on Tuesdays.

Location

Beginning in May 2017 Wild Ozark Ginseng & Companions Habitat Nursery will have a physical retail outlet! Sign up for newsletters (links at top and in sidebar) to get announcements. It’ll be quite a long drive out into beautiful countryside of Kingston, AR, but I think you’ll enjoy the ride.

Open by appointment only. Email [email protected] to pick a date and time (no Tuesdays or Saturdays).

My Sourcing Methods

All of the natives are ethically propagated from plants that exist here at Wild Ozark. I use root division, cuttings, and seeds. From time to time I rescue plants uprooted by the road grader from the side of the road that would otherwise die (the Dutchman’s Breeches along one stretch of our county road meet this fate every spring).

For other plants that aren’t available through the above methods, I purchase seeds.

We would never threaten the survival of any of our plants by over harvesting for the sake of selling plants. Because of this, our supplies will always be limited. If you want to make sure of what we will have on any given week, please email by the Sunday before. If you give assurances that you’ll be there to pick up your plant, I’ll hold your request so you won’t make a trip out for nothing.
