After the harvest season, can ginger be left in the ground for following season of growth?

Gardenate does not suggest growing ginger in NZ temperate climates, maybe not warm enough. If you are going to try to grow it read the notes here, your answer is in the notes.

Hi Karen Thanks for your comments. I am going to have a go at growing ginger inside. I love your tip on letting the cut ginger dry out before planting. I hadn't thought of that. Thanks. Tracey
