Hedychium Gardnerianum The ‘Ginger Lily’

This question was asked by
S. Jones

I have two large pots, how many bulbs will I need for a stunning show? do they multiply in time, do they need seperating after time?

Hi
We would suggest 1 per pot. Please remember these do need heat to get them active. They will get bigger over time and when they reach a mature size, you can separate them.

The tuber supplied is so large I wondered if it was possible to divide it in half so that I can use two pots or chance growing one piece outside in my south facing garden.

Hi there,
I would leave your Hedychium Gardnerianum as it for now. When it is more established (after a year or two), then you can divide it up.

I’ve just bought a Ginger Lily tuber. Which way up do I plant it? Horizontally or vertically?

Good afternoon,
Please plant your Hedychium Gardnerianum horizontally.
