GInger in Zone 8a During Winter Months?
I use ginger a ton in my cooking, and live in a zone 8a environment. I would like to grow ginger outside for my own food use, but am worried about what happens during the winter time.
Is there a ginger that I can grow outside in Zone 8a, without having to remove it during the wintertime? I don't want to be forced to overwinter it indoors. It has to be a ginger that I can use in my cooking.
I don't know if I can simply get the ginger from the store and place that in the ground? Or is there a special ginger for zone 8a?
I'd appreciate any advice. Thanks everyone.
