Organic farming is a form of agriculture that relies on crop rotation, green manure, compost, biological pest control
and mechanical cultivation to maintain soil productivity and control pests.
Since in urban cities limitation is insufficient land for farming, the concept of terrace farming, vertical and container farmings are upcoming trends in urban farming. Here in this blog I will be sharing every single effort and techniques in building my Organic Roof :)

Ginger Plantation

Ginger plantation is quite easy which is the rhizome of the plant Zingiber officinale, and is one among  spices used in coffee and other dishes.  It is also called root ginger and the plantation is usually done with a small rhizome and once the plant matures, it give rise to large ginger in bunch.

Soil-mix  preferred for ginger plantation is organic material or prepared compost  to fill the container. 

Since the ginger tubers needs to grow in size so the soil chould be loosend with any heavy stones or other obstacles in the container.
