Q.Ginger Plants

Anonymous added on December 16, 2014 | Answered

I have planted one acre in ginger and they are one month away from harvesting but the problem is that they have been overgrown by a lot of weeds, grass, brush, etc. What I would like to find out is if I leave it to die or cut down everything would the ginger plants grow back and would the harvest be larger? Would it make sense to start over in this way? Or should I harvest it and use some to replant?

If you are only a month from harvest, I would check a few plants and see how the rhizomes look. If they look full and healthy and ready to harvest, I think you should go ahead with the harvest and replant some for the next round.
