Both Horizon Herbs and Richters have the seeds. The seeds require 2 years to germinate. I haven't tried this one.

Im not familiar with this particular type of ginger but Have you tried buying a piece of root? It would get you started faster.

I've got a Siberian Ginseng (Eleuterococcus)that is 8-9 years old. I got a small plant from Horizon Herbs. It is now 6-7 feet tall. I am in the mountains of NY state, zone 5. It does quite well here.
