Google - ginger plants - they seem to grow to about 18-24" high. Read about how to grow it. Regular fert each month - not one big hit of fert.

Sorry word that last comment wrong ginger is not doing well struggling is there a particular fertilize required

A general all round fertiliser has about 10-12% N, 4-5% P and around 12-14% K for growing vegetables around here (Bundaberg) . Only way to know is do a soil test. If you dig up some ground put some dry matter (dry grass, manure, leaves etc and some fert and lime and give it 3-4 mths to all rot down you should have a reasonable soil. see how you plant goes in the next few months with the warmer weather.
