Turmeric 2017

  • Turmeric plants in spring
  • We are in our second garden year of focusing on our Turmeric bed. Our Turmeric really took off the summer of 2016, giving us over 30 plants. In the spring of 2017, 28 of those Turmeric woke up and are growing again. By the end of June, all thirty Turmeric plants were up and growing. In March, 2017, I planted Mexican Marigold seed. We were very impressed last summer with the growth and over story that the Mexican Marigolds provided.  This bed has a southeast exposure and the turmeric really only needs overstory protection from the morning sun in the summer months. Hopefully the Mexican marigolds will provide that protection.
