Turmeric: Curcuma longa
One of the world’s most treasured culinary and medicinal plants, turmeric is attractive, easy to grow, and versatile. Long held in high regard for its many health benefits, turmeric has traditionally been used with cancer, arthritis, pain, inflammation, and as an antidepressant. Turmeric is a member of the ginger family and will thrive in rich well-drained soil, in sunlight or partial shade. Turmeric is an excellent useful plant for those with limited growing space, and can do great in containers and even as a houseplant.
We currently have some nice healthy turmeric plants in stock at our edible nursery. If you are interested in purchasing your own plant/s from us, please send an email request to greendreamsFL@yahoo.com or call us: (727) 439-6700 .
