Ginger - Cultivation
Ginger is an herbaceous, tropical, perennial crop that thrives in warm and humid climates. Ginger can grow in a variety of soils including clay and sandy, loamy soils, but it does best in friable loamy soil that is well-draining and rich in organic materials. It also needs partial shade and complements other plants by growing in the shade that larger plants may produce. Ginger requires consistent amounts of water to keep the soil moist. Mulching with green leaves or manure will help maintain moisture and regulate soil temperature protecting it from the sun. Ginger is typically planted in the late spring and will be ready for harvest approximately 8-10 months after planting.
