Turmeric (Curcuma longa) is a tropical plant that is widely known for its culinary and medicinal uses.

Turmeric thrives in tropical and subtropical climates. It requires temperatures between 20°C to 35°C.

Turmeric grows best in well-draining, fertile soil with a pH level between 5.5 and 7.5. Sandy loam or loamy soil is ideal.

Dig holes about 15 to 30cm apart to allow room for growth.

Turmeric plants require partial to full sunlight. Choose a location that receives sunlight for at least 6 to 8 hours a day.

Keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Water regularly, especially during dry periods. Reduce watering when the plant is dormant.

Fertilise turmeric plants with a balanced fertiliser or organic compost during the growing season to encourage healthy growth.

Mulch the soil around the plants to retain moisture and suppress weed growth.

You can dig up the entire plant or harvest the rhizomes as needed. Gently dig around the rhizomes and lift them from the soil. Wash and dry the rhizomes before use.

Store harvested turmeric rhizomes in a cool, dry place. They can be kept whole or ground into powder for culinary or medicinal purposes.
