GINSENG — TRANSPLANTING—When ginseng plants are dug up and transplanted in the summer, when the plant is full size, will they grow, even if the plant itself does die down?
We think that the root will continue to grow and will send up a plant in the following year, if they are dug carefully, and properly transplanted in a good place. However, the small bud at the top of the root must not be broken off or injured, and the small roots must not be broken, or allowed to dry. If possible, some of the dirt in which the wild plant grows should be allowed to remain on the roots, and the plant should be set out, as soon as possible after digging. On the whole, we think that early fall is the best time to dig and transplant wild ginseng.
