<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">I'm grateful to be getting any ginger! Tough on East Branch-- she is so nice and helpful, I'm sorry this happens to her...<br>
&nbsp;<br>
FYI everyone-- I saved back some rhizomes&nbsp;over the 2011-2012 winter and they sprouted and grew just fine last season. I also found a&nbsp;wooden box outside with ginger still planted in it&nbsp;last February--after our not-very-severe winter of 2011-2012, and the rhizomes
 were solid, in fine shape and also grew ok. They overwintered apparently down to about -2 with no protection except they were kind of in a sheltered area behind our small hoop.<br>
Last week I found a couple of leftover rhizomes in the high tunnel, about 6 inches under 2 were definitely awful, but one was in good shape.&nbsp; Slightly soft, but viable.&nbsp; hmmmm..<br>
Luckily I have good rhizomes saved from last season and stored in peat in our cellar.

<p class="MsoNormal"><span style="font-size:10.0pt;font-family:&quot;Tahoma&quot;,&quot;sans-serif&quot;">As far as I know, East Branch IS Puna. There have been a lot of issues for ginger in Hawaii in recent years. For example, an awful lot of it is grown in bags now because there
 are so many disease issues associated with the soils. Ouch! -Allan in WV<o:p></o:p></span></p>
