I need to plant some turmeric. I have a greater galangal plant--it is now about 3' tall and I hope it blooms this year. It is from a small root chunk I bought at the big Asian market in Seattle. It is a lovely plant on my front porch and I keep it outdoors year-around. Granted, it doesn't seem totally thrilled with 120f but it chugs along. It is a heavy feeder and the more compost and fish emulsion I dump on it, the taller it gets. I haven't ever dug up any to eat. Yet. I will after it blooms.
