Growing Ginger

View the Ginger page

14 Nov 11 Altone (Australia - temperate climate)
Ginger in Temperate Australia. Although not truly suited to temperate areas ginger and Galangal can be grown. I've had a small bed of both for 3 years which produces a small crop for the kitchen each year. I grow in sandy well drained soil and the bed is surrounded on 3 sides (fence/shed) - northern aspect open. I suspect this and the deep mulching I give it over winter helps it survive the frosts. Go on , give it a go.
