Can I grow ginger in a pot of the ground if I live in Melbourne

I live in Macloed Melbourne and what would be the requirements to grow ginger here. Can I grow it in the ground or would it be better in a pot. Thanks for your advise Emmi

Hi Emmi,

this tropical species may not do so well in Victoria. perhaps try in a large pot that can be moved somewhere warmer in winter. a good fertile potting mix and regular applications of liquid fertiliser such as Yates Thrive Flower & Fruit Soluble Plant Food Soluble Plant Food during the warmer months when plants are actively growing. full sun protected from winds. avoid too much water once established.
