How to plant PLANT ginger
Plant the root about 2 inches deep. Water it every once in a while. Partial light is all it needs. I wouldn’t put it in direct sun.
How to harvest ginger
Making ginger tea or preparing a dish that calls for ginger? You can start taking ginger a few months after planting, carefully uncover the roots and trim off just the amount you will use right away.
