Looking after your Ginger Plant

Ginger (Zingiber Officinale) is a tropical plant which grows in shaded swamps, so try to ensure they are kept warm and out of direct sunlight in the home.

Water regularly when the top of the soil dries and you might try misting occasionally in a very dry room to keep the leaves looking fresh. In the summer months your plant will benefit from occasional feeding with any general purpose or tomato feed. They have already been repotted this season but if you feel the roots are starting to grow out the bottom or the tubers are pressing against the side of the plastic you can pot up again and this will help the ginger tuber to expand.

Ginger grow from a tuber or rhizome and so will naturally die back at the end of the season. When the leaves start to turn brown from the tips, stop watering and let all the goodness from the leaves die back into the roots. Once the foliage has died off completely lift the entire root ball and you should find you have a sizeable harvest of ginger ‘hands’.

If you’d like to grow ginger again next year store some of these tubers in a paper bag to replant in the spring. You can cut them if you need to and start off in March in a shallow tray of soil in the airing cupboard. In the meantime use your ginger root fresh in curries, stir fries and teas and you won’t be believe the difference.

Problem solving

Brown tips to the leaves are a sign that your plant either is getting too much sunlight or is not receiving enough water. You can snip the ends of the leaves off to keep it looking tidy but try a more shaded spot and misting the leaves.

At the end of the season you should expect your plant to die back but if you notice brown tips in mid summer this is a sign either of cold or scorch damage so have a look at the position again.
