Lesser Galangal Plant

Why not grow a houseplant you can eat with our ornamental, edible spices. The spicy little cousin of ginger, lesser galangal makes an attractive evergreen houseplant with edible leaves and roots.

Leaves taste similar to ginger, with subtle spice and hints of citrus when cooked, whereas the root has a hotter flavour which is ideal for oriental and Thai cuisine.

Plants prefer free-draining soil, so mix in extra sand when planting up. Leaves can be harvested at any time and roots can be harvested after the first year by removing the plant from the pot and snapping the required root from the main plant (no more than a third of the root) and then the remaining plant should be put back in the pot with fresh compost. Make sure plants are not overwatered in the winter months as they will not grow and it may cause the root to rot.
