I was FINALLY able to get some ginger to grow in a pot this year, and it's really doing well. Does anyone know if it will survive in a protected spot during the winter? We just don't have the room for yet another large pot to come into the house.

This article says that ginger can stay in the ground in zone 7 or warmer. It's warmer where you live than where I am although we are both in zone 7. My neighbor told me that our neighborhood is the coldest point of Montgomery County Grumbling . Anyway, you may want to find the warmest spot for your ginger if you leave it outside. Good luck.

I have to admit, my zone 7a plants often don't survive the winter... Thumbs down

Even though they're in pots, I think I'll try leaving them outside in a protected area. We have a new hardy hibiscus that will nee protection as well since it is also in a pot. If the ginger doesn't survive, there's always have plenty more at the asian markets .
