I am interested in growing medicinal herbs and of course ginseng is the holy grail of these. I am aware that the root can only be harvested after 10 years and that it tends to grow naturally in shady woody elevated areas, so my question(s) are can i buy the plant here and would it grow in say the wicklow mountains essentially planting it and walking away ?

Ginseng is Panax ginseng, a hardy perennial flower. It could be grown in a lightly shaded border in open, well-drained but moisture-retentive, humusy soil.

Chiltern Seeds sell the seed.
