Identical in the way it's grown for sure - very easy because like most root plants they already have a reserve to give themselves a good start so unless it's plonked into a dry bed with no nutrients it should grow just about anywhere.Is it similar to ginger to grow Mark?
Yes it is Steve I have about 3 (or 4) and they are so tough and versatile for a gardening tool or a fox hole! If only my ET could talk we'd have some great reminiscing conversations about my old Army days - at the moment it's just a one way conversation with me talking to him whilst I hammer his beak into the garden bed...Handiest bit of kit I have I think. A mate was throwing one away a couple of months back so I snatched it up straight away. How else am I to measure the width of my firing pit?
Hey mate! Great to hear from you Undiesi assume that ginger and tumeric would both mature and be ready to harvest the same wa
Mark I dont have such a large gorgeous patch - yet - but I have had at least one root stock flower if planted with lots of compost. it is so beautiful that I think this is worth cultivating for the flower as well. however, i did find that the tubers were a bit smaller. what about you? and I also dry out and make my own powder. But, I find that I must leave both the tumeric and ginger for a long time and then throw in the oven, lowest setting (gas) with door open overnight. Even in the driest weather they tend to sprout. dont know if this damages the tubers nutritional value.
