Gingers etc. (Zingiberaceae)

All gingers have vigorous rhizomes which can be really tough to dig out of the ground when it comes to dividing clumps. We suggest that you grow even the hardier species in a large plastic pot, which can be sunk into the ground if necessary and bring them undercover for the winter. This has the added adavantage of bringing them into flower sooner. Grow in loam based compost, protected from hot sun & water freely in summer. If grown indoors ensure ample humidity is provided. Along with Cannas, Gingers like to have the leaves sprayed with water (not in direct hot sun to avoid scorching) Keep rhizomes just moist in winter. Divide in spring.
