Hi I’ve been be lucky with a super strong ginger plant food ginger not decorative) that has been growing for ~>6 months, and bringing up new shoots. The main plant is now flowering and still has vibrant green leaves. Is flowering good or bad? What should I do wait until the plant dies back?

Read the notes here about how to plant and grow it.The ginger plant and quite a few others die back in winter but shoot/grow again in the spring. Asparagus is very similar.
