Australian Native Ginger -Seeds

Australian Native Ginger -Seeds Image

This is an excellent ginger for those who would like their ginger to taste a little more mild than usual.
A great under tree plant that will tolerate full sun but will comfortably settle with considerable shade as well.
With its two coloured leaves, it is a bit of a fashion statement in the garden.
The only element it does not react well to is strong wind.
It is not too demanding of water and does not take a lot of looking after, apart from cutting back periodically, as a tidy-up.
All parts of the plant are edible and are generally mild ginger in taste.
The berries, seed and tips can be dried to supply a lovely red herbal tea, that has a pleasant ginger aftertaste.
Seeds are easily struck as long as you plant them and leave them alone, as they do not respond well to fussing.

Seed is only available now from our new, secure shop AustralianGardener.net.au
