Planting & Care
Wild Ginger plants should be grown in a site with light to deep shade, but they will appreciate a little morning sun. Asarums are sometimes capable live in poor, dry soil but the result will be very unsatisfactory. For Gingers to thrive, they should be planted in moist, humus rich, slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Add plenty of compost and fallen conifer needles (if available) to the soil at planting time.

Sunlight: Part shade to full shade

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium to wet

Temprature: 40°F.

Fertilizer: Apply for organic fertilizer
