Reminder for Diggers:  By law all Ginseng must be at least 5 years old before it can be dug.  We will not buy any underage roots.  Diggers need to leave all small roots in the ground to help save for future generations.  Ginseng should be dug with care to minimize cut roots and keeping the growth rings (necks) attached to the roots.  Ginseng should be free of all other roots and debris.  Ginseng should never be dried in an oven or microwave.  Ginseng should not be picked over before it is brought to Boring Roots and Herbs to sell !!  We reserve the right to not buy any roots that are described above.
