There is life in my airing cupboard… The ginger rhizome I wrote about on Monday has sprouted lots of strong roots, after just 4 days! Each bud has started to look shoot-like, become slightly pink and sent out between 6 and 10 healthy roots. I am delighted with this first attempt at growing one of my favourite exotic herbs.
The pot is now in a bright but cooler room so I hope that it will continue to do well. The soil has been moistened a little more and I shall leave the plastic bag on for a couple of days, to ease the transition from the toasty warm airing cupboard. I have high hopes of honey, ginger and lemon using my ginger plant, ths winter. Perhaps that’s a little ambitious!
