Growing Instructions; american ginseng (panax quinquefolium) is native to north american forests, therefor it has to be in a shady location, morning and evening sun is good, midday sun should be avoided. Well drained soil and location, wet ground conditions causing root rot.
Keep it mulched during the summer, add more mulch for the winter and make sure there is a snow cover on the plant otherwise the ground temperature will be to low for the plant to survive.

Additional information; when it comes to seed, more then one plant is needed for pollination. Ginseng will grow for many years, provided the conditions are right, increasing the medical properties (ginsenosides) with age.
