Ginger is very expensive here in Tasmania at the moment. $65/kilo! How large do the pieces of 'root' with sprouting bud have to be to be viable? (I get them started in a small pot kept above the fridge which benefits from the extra warmth generated.)

Start with a piece about as big as your thumb. Don't plant until Summer in Tassie or the root will just rot.

I'm Bundaberg Qld - someone here advertising on Facebook Market Place selling Ginger (he may have run out by now) $30/kg. You can have up to 5kg posted to you for $9.50 or $13. You would only get about 1.5-1.75kg in small bag and probably 3kg in bigger bag. I could find out their phone number.

Ginger is a warm/hot climate crop.
