How to Plant Grow & Harvest HEALTHY GINGER – Containers soil & Aquaponics
Hi Folks. Ginger would have to be in the top 3 plants I enjoy growing in our patch. Not only is it easy to grow but requires little maintenance and is also one of those spices that always taste so much better when used straight from the patch. Would be great to hear from you if you have a crack at growing some this season.

What do you do with the mother root after you snap off the new ginger? Can you reuse the mother root to plant more or do you use it for cooking or both? Or just throw it away? Thank you.
Thank you. Very useful and professional. Ismail asmal

Hello, very helpful video! Can you also eat the mother rhizome after the harvest or do you throw it away?
Hi any tips on growing ginger in UK London.
Great Tutorial great Tudor 👍👍
Great Video. I love how Rob gives great info and in a easy to digest way. Too many hipsters out there only interested in being seen and getting attention, Rob is not one of them 🙂 Keep them videos coming, very very helpful. Thank you.
Thanks for an informative video! I’m in Canada, zone 7/8 and I was able to glean enough info from your tips to help me get an idea what I should do to winter the rhizomes. Thanks so much!
You might like freezing in ice cube trays, bag (or doing wrap) individually. Nice, easy portion size.
sir please tell me about mixture of all ingredients in the growing pot
Yes! Indeed this video has helped alot, inspiring me to plant more thank you so much. God bless you Aameen.
Hi can I have ur Watsap no
can you grow ginger in a greenhouse
Is it possible to plant during rainy season?
Best gardening know how to video ever! I got everything I need to know how to grow ginger. Thanks. Very informative including the cooking tips!
Wow that was an incredible video the very best that I have seen educational and thank you for the encouragement next spring I will definitely plant some now that I have a great guide to growing Ginger! All the best!
Tony can you sit down and watch this? How many times can you say the same phrase over and over again we get what you’re going for get to the point. These infomercials and letters that go on and on and repeat over and over again I don’t know which think tank came up with people love to hear things reinforced 900 times before you get to the point – wrong. Sorry I can’t go through this I can’t even skip ahead try and narrow it down get to the point so people will follow what you’re saying otherwise you’ve probably lost 90% of your audience already.
In one part of your video, some of your ginger plants had a lot of brown and yellow on the tips of the leaves. Is that a bad thing? My ginger plant has that and I thought it meant disease of the plant.
I like this video, very educating.
I dehydrate smaller slices then take it to work with me. Any stress related stomach upset and I add it to my tea. It works in minutes so I can get back to work.
At home I store it in a glass container covered with sherry. When I need it I slice it up and add a bit of the ginger sherry for a boost.
Very wholesome and efficient presentation! Congratulations and thank you for your time and effort.
great info.. I'm in zone 4 and will have to use pots. Should I wait until January to plant them with grow lights with my bonsai and herbs.? and them over winter and in the garage for the next year?
Best vid I’ve watched in a long time!
Trying it this year. Temps here are down to 8c at night and up to over 30c or last year 43c. But relatively short season of up to 4.5 months im currently using a 25 cm pot whole trying to get a big one. And move it out if outside is hotter and inside at night or when its a cold day. We'll see how well it goes. Not sure if they different from low night temps.
Very useful tips I love your program
