Planting and 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 Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full Sun well-drained soil medium minus 40F. Apply any organic fertilizer
