Description
 
● Ginger grows to a height of between two and four feet and produces multiple beautiful flowers ranging in color from white to pink. Ginger bulbs are somewhat tropical plants and need to be cultivated in USDA zones 8 through 10, but, for Preppers in northern climate zones, they can also be cultivated in a container much like Aloe vera. Ginger grows fast and reproduces quickly so there will be an adequate amount of roots for medical purposes. For optimal results, plant in full sun to partial shade with adequate access to water. It is highly recommended to plant ginger plants in your Prepper garden.
