How to Grow Ginger

Posted on
ginger bulb

This bulb of ginger has been left out in the kitchen bench for a few weeks.

If you want to enjoy homegrown ginger, it really isn’t hard to do. This piece of ginger was bought at the local weekend markets and then after a few weeks in the fridge (when I didn’t use it for cooking) I left it out on the kitchen bench for about two weeks. You can see the light green sprouts starting on several bumps. All I need to do now is pop this in the garden, or a large pot, water frequently and soon it will start popping out shoots and growing like this one I posted yesterday. If you live in a cooler climate you can try growing it indoors, just remember to give in plenty of humidity – you might like to try keeping it in the bathroom.
