Lush Greenery & Edible Goodness

Few plants are as healthful as the spice Ginger.

What is commonly called the Ginger Root is actually the rhizome that grows below ground between the bamboo-like greenery and the actual root of the ginger.

Call it what you will...the Ginger Root (or Rhizome) is unmatched in the nutritional and culinary worlds.

It can be added to sauces, soups, or stir-fried, pickled, caramelized, candied, and made into tea. No matter how you slice it - Spice Ginger is an amazing plant that no home or gardener should be without.

Plant your spice Ginger in early spring, keeping it moist and shaded. When the foliage dies back in late fall...the treasure below ground is ready to be harvested.

You can leave a few rhizomes in the ground or place them in a container to start next year's crop - they won't need to be watered until next spring. Use the rest of the harvested ginger for all of your culinary delights.

If you live in a climate where temperatures drop below 50°, plant your spice Ginger in a container and bring it inside during the colder weather. A 14 inch pot will hold 3-4 average size rhizomes and grow a plentiful supply of ginger.

If you are growing your ginger inside, remember that they love humidity and well drained soil. Place a stone-filled saucer below the container, and keep it filled with water; this will insure that the soil doesn't dry out.

You will make your indoor ginger plant especially happy by giving it a daily 'spritz' of water, to mimic the humid habitat of its native home.

These are very healthy, obviously well cared for as all the plants I get from F-G-T's. I appreciate NOT having to wait years for fruit and nuts. AND I like that they don't ship me tiny trees that quickly die like other nurseries do, their trees are big. I can't recommend them highly enough! Add to that the fact that insuring the trees you buy gives you a year to see if anything untoward happens with your trees. They replace them fast!

I'm just getting ready...already...for harvest! so easy. in winter ..it grew in the house, and once it was above 55° out, it went crazy big outside....it's past 4' tall and starting to bend over. So, I know that it is harvest time! so, excited! and....the new ones just coming up can be replanted for another harvest later. VERY HAPPY!

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Ginger Plant

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Ginger Plant.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Ginger Plant gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Ginger Plant again after the transplant is complete.

Friend is from Sri Lanka. Her mother died. I wanted to give her a plant that reminded her of home. I thought this was as close as I could get given Davis California weather.

Please expedite shipping if possible.

Once ginger plant is in place, how often I can harvest? Once a year in fall?

Having harvested, does the plant regrow with rhizome left in the pot?
Kiran M on May 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes once only
Once I gather my ginger how do I keep it? Do I dry it out?
Sherley B on Jul 20, 2015
I am listing a sight that I used for my personal information and found it very helpful.
theherbgardener.blogspot.com. Let me know how your harvest turns out.
How many plants are in the container for 39.95 1-2-3-4 ?
Jon E on Feb 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: When mine arrived it was small and was approx 2-3 ginger 'roots ' Honestly it did not look too healthy... Much to my surprise it greened up and grew really fast! I left it outside last summer and it exploded! I had to repost and pull quite a few roots. I have it inside for the winter and it is still growing faster than I expected. Awesome, fresh ginger!
Does the ginger plant grow well as an indoor plant? Can it be both decorative (year round) and my source for some fresh ginger (harvested)? Thanks!
Elsie S on Aug 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can keep them indoors.
