Up until last year I was not very successful at growing ginger. I don't know why exactly but feel I may have tried growing it at the wrong time of year. It grows here during the wet season, and last wet season I managed to get some shoots going, and then more and more, and pretty soon I had a whole bed of ginger. How marvelous! I do use a lot of ginger and I figured that even if ginger was the only thing I harvest out of my garden it would make my vegetable gardening productive. then it started to flower..
I re-planted the entire bed in rows, and hope to harvest in a bit more organised way this time, since some of what I dug up had only just been planted. I think I will move from one side to the other once I run out of frozen garlic and have to raid the garden once again.
