  1. Ginger is absolutely beautiful. In the tropics in Australia (Queensland etc.) they grow freely but we can’t import any of the gorgeous ornamental gingers down here to Tasmania for some reason (customs and quarantine) so I bought some regular ginger from the supermarket and tried to grow it. It went fine for a while but then just decided to die. My turmeric and cardamom are doing well though and are overwintering in the glasshouse with all of my other precious potted exotics 🙂
