Hi good day, Please may I know what type of sand to use to plant ginger and where do I get/buy them from? Also are egg shells a good substitute for sand. Thanks lots for your help! Have a lovely day!

Just put lots of compost in soil and plant ginger. You may have to wait for two years before you can dig ginger out. Within two years there will be enough big ginger formed.
