Can I grow ginger in a greenhouse? I know winter is coming... but I just want to save my shoots...

Hi Maria, ginger is a tropical, so it will need to keep warm. If your greenhouse is heated, great! Otherwise, grow it in a pot indoors, in a sunny spot. Not on the window sill, as it can get quite cold at night. Keep it moist, especially if you have the heater on, but don't overwater, as the rhizomes may rot.
