Ginger Plants

Ornamental Ginger Plants (Not the edible Ginger which is Zingiber officinale)

(Shipping May to Sept 2017)

Tropical Ginger plants and in particular the Hedychium Ginger from JungleGardens are another favourite of mine which I have been growing for about 30 years. The strong rhizomatic root systems throw annual shoots to 6 ft topped by a dense head of flowers in late summer which look and smell gorgeous. They are hardier than most people realise and given a warm south facing wall with a protective mulch in winter, they will survive reasonable frosts. However because of our short growing season they may not reach flowering maturity outside, unless in a hot sun pocket. The alternative is to dig them up and place into large pots for late flowering and over wintering under glass in a frost free greenhouse or conservatory and started into growth in early spring.

Apart from Seeds and some Greenhouse Products, we sometimes also sell a range of tropical plants. We only supply these from late May to September and specialise in Banana Plants, Brugmansia, Gingers and some Conservatory Plants. Please Note: We do not grow huge volumes of plants and we may run out of availability by mid season.

All plants are shipped by courier services and because this is seasonal we CANNOT TAKE MIXED ORDERS of Seeds or Products along with Plant orders.  Please place any Plants as a separate order of Plants only. Any mixed orders with other products will not be accepted. Plant orders are only accepted for UK delivery addresses and surcharge areas may require additional shipping charges.


Hedychium gardnerianum

Hedychium gardnerianum the Kahili Ginger - 3 litre plants җ 
Hedychium gardnerianum the Kahili Ginger is still my favourite ginger lily with huge inflorescences of bright golden yellow, scarlet stamens and a fantastic perfume. Flowers easily once the root stock is filling a 10” pot or larger and fed regularly with plenty of sun. Sensible height for an Hedychium flowering at 3 to 4ft.

Hedychium pink flame

Hedychium pink flame - Hybrid Ginger 3 litre plants җ
Hedychium pink flame is an excellent 4ft Tom Wood hybrid, flowering from late August onwards with clusters of peachy pink flowers with a wide dark orange throat. The extremely fragrant flowers add to the attraction when brought in to conservatories during our Autumn.
