Rising interest in native herbs prompted full-time ginseng grower Dr. W. Scott Persons and horticulturalist Dr. Jeanine M. Davis to combine their expertise to create this practical guide to the cultivation of woodland medicinals—including ginseng, goldenseal, ramps, black cohosh, spikenard, and wild ginger. Expanded from Persons' out-of-print book, American Ginseng: Green Gold, this thorough handbook is indispensable for both prospective and experienced woodland growers. Profiting from sustainable non-timber forest products is emphasized as an alternative to depleting wilderness resources. Illustrated with over two hundred photographs and numerous tables, it will appeal to those looking to turn a profit or to those merely interested in a horticultural challenge.
