Can I plant Ginger and Turmeric in the month of January? Zone 9b
06 Jan 22 Janet F (USA - Zone 6b climate)
Just checked my ginger pots, many little sprouts starting ( Basically like potatoes) so I just watered well and put them back on the heat mat. I bought the ginger at Whole Foods and rinsed it well in case of any growth inhibitors, cut it in 1-2” chunks with a few places that looked like they could be eyes, planted it in potting soil( 2-3 pieces per 6” pot) just barely covered and watered , put on heat mat with plastic wrap over since our house is old and drafty. But in zone 9 you may have a long enough growing time, I don’t so figured they’d need a head start.

You can start it inside. Check you tube, many videos. The rusted gardener has one, in bags on top of the fridge by see video for details. I tried some just in seed started but they didn’t sprout so about to do it in the bag method. Then pot up and outside after frost.

Probably not - if there is no P S or T's in any of the months in the planting calendar then you don't have the climate for it.
