Customer Tips & Reviews Turmeric Orange
MOUNT GRAVATT , QLD, Australia
I love to make my own spice pastes so growing my own spices is even better! Its a perfect plant for my area.
A Turmeric and water paste to clean your teeth with, will whiten them as well
KEPERRA, QLD, Australia
Turmeric is so darn easy to grow! Best in a pot as the plants in my garden were never happy and dwindled to nothing. Give it regular water and enjoy the lush foliage and waxy cream flowers. Harvest in autumn and you'll be amazed at how much it has bulk...
WOODVALE, WA, Australia
Stuck some rhizomes in the ground and they grew a few days later. I now have heaps of turmeric plants and they are so easy to grow. Keep them in the shade during hot sunny days.
I am using Turmeric for my rhinitis and is working very well. But we must make sure to get the pure product; because some people are selling Turmeric mixed with other products that may cause us to be sick.
