Ginger, a spice that has numerous health benefits, is low maintenance, and can be grown at home easily. First, purchase ginger root from a garden centre or seed catalog. Do not use grocery store-bought ginger root, as it may be sprayed with chemicals that inhibit growth. Fill a wide, shallow pot with potting soil. Soak the ginger root overnight. Place the ginger root in the potting soil, with the buds pointing upward. Water well and place in a warm, shaded spot. Keep the soil moist. Shoots will appear after a couple of weeks.
