Flowering Gingers

Here’s some information about Flowering gingers which we recommend reading;

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

· Most flowering Gingers are deciduous throughout winter. They produce flowers from about December to May each year.

· There are miniature varieties which only grow to 50cm, while the taller species can get to 2metres tall.

Flowers last for several weeks and are ideal as cut flowers.

GROWING TIPS:

· LOCATION – Gingers can be grown in either an indoor or outdoor environment, in the ground or in a pot

· LIGHT – Make sure you grow your gingers in the correct amount of sunlight, or shade, as this can dramatically affect the performance, growth and flowering of your plant.

· WIND – Keep protected from strong winds

· COLD CLIMATES –  Flowering gingers are ideal for growing in cold climates, as most go dormant in winter the cold does not affect them.

· SOIL OR MIX – All gingers will thrive in a rich, well drained soil. Combining BIO GRO with your existing soil will help to achieve this. In pots, using Searle’s Premium Potting Mix will ensure your flowering ginger is happy.

· MULCHING –  Will assist in the retention of water and temperature control.

· FERTILISERS – Use Searle’s Fish and Kelp fortnightly and also slow release Acticote or Kickalong Organic.

WATERING – Daily watering is recommended over the warmer months, but DO NOT water them over winter months when they are deciduous as this can cause the rhizomes to rot.(Natural rainfall will be fine).

WHAT TO DO WHEN LEAVES APPEAR IN SPRING:

· IN THE GROUND – Feed a slow release fertiliser and start watering. Water as much as you need to keep the ground moist.

IN A POT/CONTAINER- You will need to replant your ginger into a larger size pot, feed a slow release fertiliser and start watering daily.

  • What an enjoyable day I had visiting the nursery a couple of weeks ago, wandering around looking at the plants and chatting to both of your birds. Had a lovely morning tea and brought a few plants, with lovely polite staff who went out of their way to assist me with information on a certain plant. It was so enjoyable I came back the following week and bought some more plants. I will be back even if it is a bit of a drive.
