Video Update: Friends, as we’ve gained experience both growing organic ginger and sharing it with all of you, we’ve learned that ginger seed planting pieces sized 2-3”, with at least 2-3 good growth buds/eyes are quite sound & successful. While our videos reflect our skill & knowledge at a certain moment in time, we’ve since adjusted our ginger sales & shipping to accommodate this ginger seed standard.
Here is everything we use to grow gorgeous ginger each season:
⭐️ Seed Quality Ginger: Our organic ginger is simply the best we’ve ever seen. We share half, 2 & 5 pounds; there are 3 to 5 plants per half-pound. We also share our Ultimate Ginger Collection which includes a heat mat, organic potting mix, organic ginger fertilizer & more. Also, all ginger orders receive 20% off our Grow Your Own Ginger Masterclass and Ultimate Collection gets 50% off our Masterclass!
⭐️ Heat Mats are essential for ginger to sprout quickly & vigorously. We use them for microgreens all winter, sprouting ginger in late winter and starting all other seeds in spring. They make all the difference.
⭐️ Full-Spectrum LED Lights are an investment you’ll wish you’d made years ago, once you see how impressively happy your plants grow. Ours are made in Indiana by our friend Victor; they come with timers and have a ten-year warranty. I’m pretty confident we’ll have ours the rest of our lives.
⭐️Nutrient-dense potting mix is key for sprouting ginger. We share the dreamy organic potting mix we use at Fruition as well as our DIY Potting Mix, an easy & economical way to make 80 quarts of nutrient-rich potting mix perfect for starting seeds and potting up transplants in spring as well as growing greens indoors all winter. Check out the recipe here.
⭐️ Fertility: We easily harvest over one pound of ginger per plant and, if you feed them well, you will too! Our organic ginger fertilizer is exactly what ginger needs for robust health and impressive rhizome development. We also foliar feed with dilute fish emulsion every week. (Even if you feed less often, sometimes is better than no times!) We keep track of all our planting, foliar feeding, harvesting and so much more in our Across the Seasons Perpetual Calendar, as well.
⭐️ Especially in cool seasons, we keep our ginger (and peanuts!) toasty with floating row cover over spring steel hoops. They create an easy and inexpensive greenhouse that holds more heat than you might suspect.
Fruition’s Masterclass shares a lifetime of learning with video tutorials surrounding you with insight whether this is your 1st or 50th season growing. You’ll have lifetime access to the course, amplifying your abundance well beyond your garden and we look so forward to joining you on the journey!

“I was so intimidated to grow ginger and Petra’s Masterclass gave me the confidence and skills to grow pounds and pounds of my own ginger! I knew what to expect, what to look for and now I can’t wait to grow it again and again and again.”
