Tips for growing Ginger and Turmeric?
I'd really like to grow both of these plants in my garden. But I have no idea how to best grow them. I have one area that is 2x2, it gets a few hours morning sun in the Spring then rest of the day in shade. I have another 2x2 area that gets a few hours afternoon sun only and rest of the time in shade. How many rhizomes should I put in a 2x2? Is the available sun sufficient for both plants? I'd also like to know watering and fertilizing schedule (if any). I am in zone 9b and it never drops below 40F when is the best time for me to plant both plants? Will they be able to overwinter here? When is the best time to harvest and is there a special way to handle them during harvest? Thanks
