Hi Krissy,
Actually ginger is quite easy to grow. Choose gingers that looks healthy and plump and it should be firm growing buds. Choose with light shade and well drained soil. Cover with a thin of soil, water lightly.

Thanks for visiting.

I've been wanting to grow ginger in my garden too. Is it hard to grow? I have a ton of stuff in my garden, so check it out sometime – we have a link on our blog called Our Garden. It will take you to all the pictures.

I cook with ginger but at the market there is only one kind of ginger. Even at the Korean market I find only one type.

It looks like 紫姜 (don't know if i write it correctly, but people in my kampung called it this way), the ginger that normally people use widely to cook soup during confinement. But i think this is not the same, because it is call blue ginger.. hehe

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
