About Us / Catoctin Mountain Botanicals History: Situated in 7 forested acres on the eastern slope of Catoctin Mountain in Frederick County, MD, Catoctin Mountain Botanicals has been growing ginseng in the woods using organic methods since 1995. Currently American Ginseng (Panax Quinquefolium) is being cultivated in raised beds comprising 10,000 sq. ft. and about 30,000 sq. ft is being grown in wild simulated stands.\n\nWe also have goldenseal and naturally growing stands of bloodroot, black cohosh, jack in the pulpit, and mayapple from which we can provide rootlets for transplanting. These forest medicinals are available in significant quantities as a byproduct of our ongoing ginseng bed preparation.\n\nWe offer "stratified" ginseng seeds in August that will sprout in the first spring after planting. Also, woods grown medicinal plant rootlets will be available to ship from Sept to March. All of the rootlets are hand selected and shipped via priority mail. Instructions for transplanting will also be included.
