Customer Tips & Reviews Native Ginger
NORTHFIELD, SA, Australia
Trying supermarket varuety, would be most probably Queensland variety.
The most beautifully fragrant white flowers. Unlike the normal edible ginger this grows tall.
Eagleby, QLD, Australia
New to the plant collection. Growing well in the pot. Will harvest leaves and berrys when required and tubers also.
Bellbird Park, QLD, Australia
Have just planted these in the shade as I assume they are similar to all other gingers and I will keep a close eye on them
Valley Heights, NSW, Australia
healthy, although chooks have got at it a bit and dug around it.
