Great Aussie grown Ginseng

Most successful ‘Australian’ ginseng growers are boutique in their style.

Although this sounds French, growing ginseng in Australia has special considerations and challenges which are uniquely Australian. There are some veteran growers with small plots of beautiful ginseng that is between 9 to 15 years old.
Raising ginseng in a climate that is wet in the cold season and dry in the hot season is no mean feat. This is opposite to ginseng’s natural climate in the northern hemisphere.
Bush fires, floods, possums, wallabies, bush rats, lyre birds and insects add another dimension of care.
Our eucalyptus forests are vastly different to the deciduous forests in the northern half of the world. Our ‘Widow maker’ trees drop branches during times of stress, sometimes squashing ginseng beds and protective enclosures. This can also have the effect of changing the canopy and shade which is essential for ginseng to thrive.
Quality Australian ginseng is a rare commodity, but there are some talented green thumbs out there in the bush who have caught the ginseng bug.
Kim and Liz are Australian pioneers of organic Australian grown ginseng* in Victoria. *(This product is not Certified Organic, but grown without the use of chemical fertilisers or pesticides)
We are happy to bring their fabulous and mature ginseng to your attention.
