Planting turmeric is fairly easy though it needs patience, especially when you are growing it in a cool climate! This is very similar to growing ginger as you have read in my earlier Growing Ginger post. Also like ginger, turmeric is grown from the root which is called a rhizome. Turmeric has a reputation of giving great health benefits and a little goes a long way as it is strong in flavour. Read more about turmeric in this BBC Good Food post.
I like to start with an organic rhizome but it can be tricky to source it.
I am updating the details on the guide to how to grow your own turmeric at the moment!
