GINGER - GALANGAL (alpinia galanga) PB5 30cm
Widely used in Thai cooking, galangal is an aromatic rhizome that grows on a clumping plant similar to a number of ornamental gingers.Plant in semi shade in well drained soil after the danger of frost has passed and the soil has warmed up. If you plant them too early, the cold, moist soil may cause them to rot. Plant them in a ridge and harvest the roots in autumn. You can leave some in the ground to sprout again, but if you have frost, it is best to bring them indoors for winter.

SOLD OUT FOR THIS SEASON. ORDERS PLACED NOW WILL GO IN THE QUEUE FOR DELIVERY NEXT SEASON [OCT 2017 - MARCH 2018]

The hardiest of the guavas, with little red fruit ripening in May/June. Excellent for breakfast fruit salad and guava jelly or wine. These fruit are super high in Vitamin C and are companions for citrus which means their place in a subtropical orchard is really on the edge with the citrus. Relatively hardy and wind resistant.

This plant makes a great ‘living boundary’ planted 1 metre apart in a hedge.
