CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Ginger needs to be planted in well-fertilized acidic soil with regular water. If given the right conditions, it can become invasive, so it may also be a good idea to grow ginger in a large pot or bucket. Temperatures should not dip below 55 degrees.

DESCRIPTION

A versatile and common household spice, ginger is a subtropical rhizome that can be used in cooking, teas, and medicines. In general, ginger needs lots of heat, humidity, moisture, and fertility to grow well.  Amend planting soil with peat moss and fertilize with organic gardenia fertilizer.
