How to Grow Store Bought Ginger Root #Herbs
Growing ginger is no different than growing another herb. You need to buy the best root possible, a plump, smooth skinned ginger root is best. Do not use one that looks skinny and shriveled. This indicates that the root has been stored too long and has become old.
Soak the ginger root in warm water overnight. After soaking, use a pot with plenty of drainage, and fill it with potting soil. I like to use my composted worm manure mixed with potting soil to plant ginger.
