  1. Hey my names Justin I live in southern middle Tn in Lawrence county and I am looking to sale 7 to 10 wild grown ginseng about 10 to 15 years old and from research I’ve done and pictures I’ve seen it’s some of the nicest biggest kind of ginseng there is. I’m new to this and inherited it from my grandfather. If you are a dealer of if anyone knows a dealer plz comment or text me anytime between 7am and 10pm. 9312429756 any day of the week I want to sale asap. Thanks for your time!!!

    1. Hi Justin, I just found your comment here and I’m not sure if I replied to you via email or not. If you’re still looking to sell your roots, try posting this comment over at the prices page ( One thing to be aware of, though, is if by ‘inherited it from your grandpa’ you mean the roots themselves have been passed down to you already harvested 10-15 years ago, it may be illegal to sell them in your state. The laws vary from state to state, though.

  2. Still checking out your website but am enjoying all the information you have. I have always loved plants and getting my hands dirty in the soil. Lately I’ve become interested more in native plants and herbs. Moved from MI to NC several years ago and have just recently started to notice the natives in my yard (in a sub div but have almost half acre lot with a natural wooded area). May move in a few years after retirement to a little more rural area with more land and trees. Thinking maybe of growing ginseng and other companions.

    1. Hi Donna, thanks for reading! I’m always excited to hear from other nature and plant lovers. I’d always been interested and enjoyed both, but when we moved from our semi-urban life in south Louisiana to the very rural and wild Ozarks, it was a big change. Like a smorgasbord of plants and nature had suddenly appeared in front of me, lol. In NC I imagine there is a lot of opportunity for nature and native plants, and you should definitely be able to find a place where you can grow the ginseng and companions 🙂
