Ginger

All gingers prefer filtered light, rich, deep, fertile soils with plenty of organic matter, good water and warm climates. Poor soils and cooler climes are tolerated but root yield is subsequently poorer. All have beautiful flowers. | David White - Newcastle, NSW 28-May-2006

Likes a fair bit of water and shadey places. Once you find somewhere that it likes it is very easy to grow. The leaves remind me of bamboo. I have mind mixed in with a bed full of mint basil and native violets... kinda makes it a bit hard to dig up the rhizomes!


DOES NOT like to be moved while it has leaves (all of the leaves will die back) - so wait until it naturally dies back in winter and just move the rhizomes.

Got the root at the supermarket 4 years ago.  Planted it in a large pot and is doing very well.  The leaves and flowers die of in winter and start coming back every spring.

This has been grown from ginger bought from the grocer. It didn't  do much last year in its first season and we had no crop. However this year it is growing reallly well and we should have some for the kitchen.

April 2015: There has been a lot of new growth this year and several flower heads are emerging. I don't know how these will affect the plant as this is the first time I have grown ginger.
