A tropical edible rhizome that can be used as an understory plant in syntropic farming or as decorative ginger in a semi-shade garden.
It may look like ginger and even be related, but don’t let its family ties fool you – it is pink in colour with a more peppery-citrus flavour. It can also be a little pithy so it needs to be chopped finely or even crushed for optimal
Try to plant them as understory plants where they will be protected from full sun and frost.
Drought and frost-sensitive, galangal does prefer tropical and sub-tropical conditions but will grow well in warm temperate areas as long as they are protected from frost.
The only problem that may occur is root rot if the ground is too wet, even though they prefer moist soil.
Siamese ginger, greater galangal, lengkuas or laos.
Size: 50mm tube stock.
