Each packet contains 2 small pieces of turmeric rhizome with 2 buds on each piece. Turmeric rhizomes is the fleshy root-like structures from which a Turmeric plant is grown. Turmeric is widely used to season a variety of meat, rice and vegetable dishes in Middle Eastern and Asian cuisines. It has also traditionally been used in Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine to treat inflammatory conditions, skin diseases, wounds, digestive ailments, and liver conditions.
Planting Turmeric Rhizomes
- Turmeric likes fertile, well-drained soil, and filtered sun.
- It can be grown directly in the garden or in containers.
- It is usually planted in winter, and harvested the following autumn to early winter. However, you can also plant the rhizomes in Spring or Summer .
- Plant the rhizome at an angle, with one side about 7cm deep, and the other just below the surface. Position it so that the growth buds point upwards. Cover with soil and press down firmly.
- Rhizomes are prone to rotting if they’re in standing water or soggy soil, so water very lightly after planting and then do not water the rhizomes again until you see that they have started to break dormancy, meaning when the first green shoots appear. This will happen in Spring, if you planted the rhizomes in winter. If you planted the Rhizomes in Spring or Summer, then it can take anything from 20–45 days, before you will see green shoots.
- Turmeric requires 8 to 10 months of frost-free growing, from planting to harvest. For the first year, leave it to become established before harvesting.
