2023 Herb of the Year — Ginger

As a tropical plant, ginger (Zingiber officinale) doesn’t naturally thrive in Virginia’s Zone 7 climate, but with the proper conditions, you can grow ginger at home for yourself. Many commercial growers will grow the plant under a greenhouse to control soil moisture, but small amounts of ginger can be grown in containers in partial shade. Whether you buy it fresh from the grocer or grow it yourself, ginger is a versatile herb with long-recognized health benefits. No wonder the International Herb Association selected Ginger as its 2023 Herb of the Year! Or, take the easy route and find an array of gingery products at the Maymont Garden Hub.

Dozens of plant and specialty vendors travel to Maymont from across the region to serve the discerning shoppers at Herbs Galore, offering a wide variety of herbs, annuals, perennials, trees, vegetables and garden-inspired food and décor items. Scan the list of participating vendors by category, and visit their websites for inspiration. Don’t miss the Maymont Garden Hub for a broad selection of plants and related merchandise, where a limited-edition Maymont ginger tote bag comes with any purchase over $40.

All vendor spots are full.
