Where to Purchase Organic Ginger and Tumeric

(Question)

I have searched high and low. Do you know where I can buy tumeric rhizomes to grow in containers. I am in Toronto?

What about organic ginger (I am afraid of trying to plant the imported supermarket variety).

(Answer)

Unfortunately, Toronto Master Gardeners do not recommend specific stores or sources for purchases.  Our role is to help the public with horticultural information and education as it relates to plants. That being said, try visiting your local Organic Farmers Market. The Toronto Botanical Garden located at 777 Lawrence Avenue East  holds an Organic Farmer’s Market every Thursday from 2-7pm.

Alternatively, a quick search does show it is available to be purchased on line. If you decide to take this route, make sure to purchase from a reputable source.

Good Luck with your search!
