growing ginger in containers
Today I planted some ginger. Since it is something we use and it is supposed to be fairly easy to cultivate I thought it would make a nice addition to the homestead. Last time we were in town the ginger was already beginning to show growth nubs so I picked up a few rhizomes specifically for this purpose. Since I used this tutorial and because I really do not know much about the cultivation of ginger, here is the site I used.
I used a large tote for my container with about 7 inches of soil. I used 6 pieces of rhizome in all for the container and planted them a couple inches down and then covered with a few inches with mulch. Should be fun and interesting to see how well or not it grows.
