This wonderful herb needs no introduction. Turmeric is one herb that can be grown throughout most of Australia, either in the garden or potted for balcony’s. It is herbaceous, so winters are usually not an issue and although it does not shoot again until summer, it’s growth season is normally quite exuberant.
Turmeric likes to grow in a warm protected spot. Makes an excellent rockery plant if allowed to spread.
All that is necessary is a well draining soil and the only maintenance is to feed with a liquid fertilizer regularly during it’s growing period.
