Ginseng Planting Season is Officially Open!

Hey everyone.
Well the 2014 planting season is soon to be upon us. We have a very good supply of 3 and 4 year old woods grown rootlets this year. The 2 year olds woodsgrown are a little light, and the availability will be down a bit. We are doing good on 1 year SELECTs and also 2 year SELECTs are available this year. Remember, I seldom begin digging and shipping roots until the end of August at the earliest, and the first few weeks of September is more likely for those who don't get their orders in early. ECF Seeders is another item which requires some lead time. I'm making them as fast as I can and had no opportunity to get ahead this summer like I wanted to. These things are selling as fast as I can make them. So don't wait until the last minute to get your orders in!

2014 Ginseng Fungicide Report








March 1, 2014

The demand for seed is greater than I've ever seen it folks. Unfortunately, the prices are also higher than I've ever seen them. A late frost in May of 2013 severely harmed the seed crop last fall. Therefore, the price of seed is expected to maintain or rise in the next few months. However, I have a very good source of seed. I am now accepting advance orders for fall 2014 seeds. This seed will not be available until late August and will ship sometime between then and the second week of September. However, with as much demand as there is out there right now, it would be wise to place your order as soon as possible to lock into the queue. As always, first come first served.

What we do

Emerald Castle Farms is still a division of Castle Enterprises. We sell ginseng seed and rootlets to growers and woodland flower gardeners. We occasionally have other woodland plants available, or can get them on a special request basis. We are the inventor and manufacturer of the ECF Seeder. Our seeder is designed to work through leafs, and in all sorts of soil conditions to take the strain out of planting wild simulated ginseng in unprepared ground. We hope to continue to expand our product line to provide our customers with everything they need related to the growing and responsible harvest of ginseng and other woodland botanicals.

 

Ohio Ginseng Dealer

We have been an Ohio ginseng dealer for a number of years. We have recently expanded this part of our business to include being a licensed exporter of ginseng and goldenseal. We are currently buying wild ginseng when in season, as well as some of the other madicinal herbs.
