    I garden near Sechelt on the Sunshine Coast and get lots of sun as the garden faces SW. Is it possible to grow edible ginger in this area of BC?
    Thanks

    Thanks for doing the research. Am going to plant both in a sheltered spot in the garden and in a pot. I had never thought about eating the leaves but if I am lucky enough to get some I'm going to give that a try too.
    Thanks again.

    hi there - I think someone makes a point somewhere in that research - to use a black pot - just one of those nursery black pots - as it raises the heat

    I do my patio tomatoes that way - and my basil

    no car tires tho (that was the old way the old timers did potatos and tomatoes) at the coast.

    enjoy the long days.
