Hi Marisa, This sounds lovely and really suited to the exposed situation which has been so difficult to work with. Ginseng and Ginger – great!! How are they coming along? I forgot a Ginger plant one winter, on a balcony here and thought it had died but not, it reemerged the next late spring, even after complete neglect from me. I have not tried Ginseng – I am very intrigued!!
