Home-Grown Turmeric Boosts Your Health
Why Turmeric Plants?
Why buy from the supermarket when you can grow your own? With our Turmeric Plant, you’ll have fresh turmeric from your backyard, perfect for making golden milk, teas, lattes or even smoothies. No need to go to expensive health food stores when you have this super spice at in your garden.
Plus, it’s easy to grow. Though it’s a tropical plant that thrives in warm, humid conditions, it’s simple to plant and nurture. Give it a bit of sun and it grows like a weed, rewarding you with exotic foliage and a large harvest of fresh turmeric in just a few seasons.

Turmeric Plant Pollination
Turmeric Plants are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Turmeric Plant will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
If you live in a colder climate, plant your Turmeric in a container to bring inside during the winter. Select a container that’s about twice the width of your plant’s shipped pot and ensure it has drainage holes. Once you’ve planted, place your Turmeric Plant in front of a sunny window, preferably one that’s South-facing.
2. Watering: Keep the soil moist but not soggy. Generally, it’s ideal to check your soil about 3 inches down for dryness. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water. Misting your Turmeric is also beneficial as it loves humidity.
3. Fertilizing: Feed your Turmeric every couple of months with compost tea or a fertilizer recommended for root crops.
4. Harvesting: When the leaves and stem start to turn brown and dry, your Turmeric is ready to harvest. Cut the stems off about an inch above the mass of rhizomes (the grouping of ginger-like Turmeric chunks) and wash well.
You can still order, but due to cold weather, we have delayed shipping to the areas shaded on the map below. We want your new plant to thrive right out of the box, so we will wait on shipping your order until the weather is ideal. This includes anyone in
