Ginger Gardening Tips and Advice

Ginger tastes great in Japanese cooking, but needs plenty of water and attention. This tropical plant is highly adaptable.

 

Planting Ginger

You can purchase your garden ginger at your local grocery store if the rhizome has good "eyes." Plant the rhizome on top of the soil in a container and press down. Cover the pot well to keep it very moist and warm at approximately 80 degrees F during the germination process. Once roots develop, set the plant in a sunny area. You can then transplant it in your garden after the plant is established.

Add plenty of rich, organic compost to improve your soil for the best gardening results. You can buy compost, but it is just as easy to make your own using compost bins.
