A note about How To Grow Ginger - Growing Ginger, Storing Ginger

Herbs are God and nature's gifts to us. While the use of herbs and herb remedies has brought excellent results for many people, do note that their health benefits may be limited when they are used in isolation. However, when combined with some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition, the impact on one's health will be greatly magnified.

In natural health and healing, we believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases. We also believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man’s understanding. It is thus a good idea to apply these fundamental health steps no matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem.

  • First and foremost, soak 2-3 fat ginger tubers in warm water overnight.
  • Fill an empty container with soil and compost. The container should be about 15 inches in diameter and about 10-12 inches deep.
  • Place the soaked ginger tubers in the soil with the buds facing the surface of the soil. Ensure that all the buds are evenly spaced from each other.
  • Water regularly in the beginning and more frequently once the ginger plant starts growing.
  • Once the ginger plants have grown a bit and look healthy, you can carry out the next phase - you could move them outside and soak them in the sun.
  • At the sign of cold winds and cool temperatures setting in, relocate the plants indoors again. The plants need to be kept dry during winter.
  • In about a year's time, the ginger plant will grow up to about 4 feet in height.
  • New sprouts develop beside the main plant; take what you require and plant the remaining for future use.

    Wondering how to grow ginger outdoors? The same process can in fact be followed to grow ginger plants outdoors. You just need to ensure that, while planting the ginger tubers, you pick a shaded spot which has soil rich in compost and is moist.

    Storing ginger

    Fresh ginger roots can be stored in plastic bags and refrigerated up to a month.

    Dried ginger can be stored in an airtight container for about 2-3 months, provided it is stored in a cool and dry place.
