Growing Ginger Root
« on: March 08, 2008, 01:21 PM »
I put a piece of ginger in compost (lightly covered) first week in January 08.
Kept compost damp but not wet. Left pot on window ledge in Kitchen (north facing).

This is result today. Now transplanted to slightly bigger pot (still lightly covered with about 1/4 inch compost) and moved to South facing window ledge.

Hi SnS,

I was just wondering how you got on with this brave attempt, (tis a year later) did you manage to grow enough to use in a curry? are you still grow ginger successfully? I would be interested to see any results.

I would never have thought of growing a ginger plant but I'm intrigued by this. Will certainly have a crack at it. If anything comes of it I'll post a pic. I've been reasonably lucky with peppers and chillies .... so we'll see. ::)

Im in the UK in Yorkshire - just thought Id mention that I successfuly grew Ginger in a pot in my greenhouse. Its not a heated greenhouse but the plant grew pretty tall - about 24" tall with about 20 odd leaves/growing spikes. Now that were in winter it is slowly dying off but from what Ive read that is expected and fine.  Im going to empty the pot as soon as its died back and see what I can save for next year or if theres enough to harvest.

One thing though - usual shop-bought ginger root from the supermarkets (at least in the UK) are treated to stop them sprouting so its best to get roots from a garden supplier. Bizarrely mine came from Homebase as an impulse buy in Feb!
