Dream State: Grow Your Own Ginger At Home - start it indoors early in the season, as a houseplant. Then move outdoors into your garden in the spring. Every "finger" of the old root will produce a new ginger root.
"I grow plants for many reasons: to please my eye or to please my soul, to challenge the elements or to challenge my patience, for novelty or for nostalgia, but mostly for the joy in seeing them grow. What a great gardening quote!
