Transplanting 'White Butterfly' ginger
My mother-in-law told me that if I wanted some of her "Hawaiian Lilies" (after much searching and sharing of pictures, we determined it is a "white butterfly" ginger), I could come and get some. I went and looked at them last week and they are sprouting. I really want to plant some in my yard, but have no idea how to move them.
She has never done anything to them and they are in a HUGE clump. By huge, I mean there is a mass of "roots" covering an area about 6'x6'. It looks like a huge mass of tangled tree roots.
What is the best way to take some of them from her and move them into my yard. The area she wants me to thin out is about 2'x2' and has probably 15-20 sprouts peeping out their heads.
Thanks for any help you can give me. I have never planted or had anything else to do with gingers.
