|I was given a ginger plant in May of 2005 and it grew very well throughout the summer and fall months. We had a light frost in November of that year and all the leaves turned brown. Will this plant come back or has it died? Thank you.

|It's not unusual for the variegated shell ginger to die back after a light frost. It will recover and produce healthy new foliage in the spring. You can cut away the damaged plant parts now and in a few weeks you should see new shoots emerging from the roots. Enjoy your plant!
