How to Grow Turmeric in Containers, in Any Zone | November 16, 2023


Choosing Your Turmeric Rhizomes:

Start with healthy, fresh, and plump turmeric rhizomes. These are available at garden centers or organic grocery stores. Select ones with buds or eyes, as they are the points from which the shoots will grow.

2. Selecting the Right Container:

Turmeric plants have large leaves and can grow up to 3 feet in height, so select a large container that is at least 12 inches deep and 12-18 inches in diameter. Ensure the container has sufficient drainage holes to avoid waterlogged conditions.

3. Preparing the Soil:

Use a well-draining, organic-rich potting mix. Mix in some organic compost or well-rotted manure to enrich the soil, ensuring optimal nutrients for the growing plants.

4. Planting the Rhizomes:

Plant the rhizomes 2 inches deep with the buds facing up. If your container is large enough, you can plant multiple rhizomes, spaced at least 6 inches apart.
