Hi, my ginger yields very small rhizomes after the whole year on ground. What should I do to increase size of rhizome?

Hi, have a look at the colour pink is good. Dynamite comes in small packages. Hope that is the case, busy with pickled ginger , have become addicted addicted addicted addicted.

Adding lots of old, rotted manure and mulch will help. The manure will provide nutrients and the mulch will help save water. Ginger also needs a good supply of water to ensure good, plump roots.
