A Modern Guide to Ginseng: the Ancient Human Shaped Cure-All
In this book, you’ll learn everything you need to know about growing ginseng – specifically American ginseng, Panax quinquefolius – and how to care for this wonderful plant from seed to harvest.
You’ll learn about the pests and diseases you risk coming face-to-face with when growing ginseng, the potential profit your crop can earn, as well as the challenges this plant faces now and in the future due to climbing global demand and poor conservation practices.
You’ll explore a brand-new world rooted in cultural significance, modern day intrigue, and over-zealous market values.
Beyond that, you’ll learn why such a small root has earned such an honorable reputation, and what you can do to help keep this plant in our lives no matter what your motivation for growing ginseng is.
Despite being forced into the background of modern life, you may be surprised to find this root in your own backyard – but don’t go grabbing your foraging basket. There’s a lofty price to pay for those who harvest the wild plant, and we’ll cover that as well.
Your journey into the world of ginseng begins here. You will find yourself referencing this book often. Sometimes, it might be over a warm cup of tea during a relaxing, candle-lit night in. Other times, it might be with your knees in the soil, frustrated over a newly found slug population.
