Sand ginger

It's the part of August when realize that you are turning on lamps at 8pm. The long nights of light are retreating. But this must be exactly what triggers the sand ginger to flower: Every morning there are more blooms nestled against the lovely, edible leaves.

I bought my sand ginger plant on a whim, intrigued by a lesser galangal I did not know (it has many common names - I just like sand ginger). It is now part of our summer meals, and it is also the plant that keeps on giving. I have divided it several times to give away. 

Read all about how to grow sand ginger, and how to use it in your meals, in my story for Gardenista. It is a very easy plant to grow.
