How to grow ginger at home

With ginger prices hitting record highs in recent years (one supermarket was charging $72 a kilo at the end of 2021), you may be thinking of trying to grow it yourself.

According to ABC Radio Perth gardening expert Sabrina Hahn, it’s not difficult, it just takes patience and the right conditions.

If you can grow garlic in your garden, you can probably grow ginger too, although if you’re in a place like Perth it will need more attention than in a hot, humid place like Queensland.

“If you are going to grow ginger in the ground, I recommend digging a deep trench – it should be 12 inches deep and about 20 inches wide,” says Sabrina.

“Fill that trench with compost and coco peat, then mix in some manure for dressing.”
