How to Grow Turmeric

image GardenDrum

Turmeric is native to the monsoon forests of south east Asia. It is a perennial herb which grows to about 1 metre tall with underground rhizomes. It produces tall, quite beautiful, white flower spikes - CHGC members have on occasion brought some to meetings for the competition table. 

Marianne Cannon from GardenDrum writes on how to grow Turmeric and discusses its uses and benefits. See this link on how to grow turmeric.

As Turmeric requires high rainfall it does quite well on the Coffs Coast and the flower makes an awesome cut flower which lasts well.


  1. Homegrown turmeric are the best and best to utilize plus one can save a lot of money too, your post is really helpful. Thanks for sharing

  2. Nice blog but Turmeric is a plant in the same botanical family as ginger. It's native to southern Asia, but turmeric is grown in a few other warm, humid climates
