This years turmeric harvest – thanks to

This years turmeric harvest - thanks to @kat.lavers for hints from your parents! This great method for cold Melbourne, especially for those in a shady garden, is to grow it in big black plastic pots in a super sunny spot ( I grew mine on my garage roof ) and give it lots of feed and water. I've brought it down before heading to Switzerland st the beginning of July as I was worried that the cold weather would cause it to rot, like my massive sweet potato crop did 2 years ago on the roof in the epic cold that year. After looking at it and taking pictures it's gone back into potting mix to be stored on the back verandah to be used as needed. I'm going to try ginger up there this summer, having had no success in previous years in the shade, which in the tropics and sun tropics is their natural environment. I'm still mildly surprised the turmeric coped with the blistering heat up in the roof
