Price $15.00
Availability: Out of stock

Available in August 2022. Sign up below to get notified once it is available for order.

Alpinia galanga

Commonly known as Siamese ginger, Thai ginger or galangal, is a tropical evergreen perennial with a thick aromatic rhizome. It grows well in cooler climates and has been grown exceptionally well in a tunnel house at KoruKai Herb Farm, Banks Peninsula. We will grow some of it this year outside, so I will report back how that goes.

We grow the red variety, which is more cold hardy and does well in our South Island climate.

The galangal has been grown at KoruKai Herb Farm, Banks Peninsula. Free from synthetic fertiliser, pesticides and herbicides. 

Order is for 1 plant.

Smallanthus sonchifolius

"Yacon" means "water root" in the Inca language and its tubers were historically highly valued as a wild source of thirst-quenching refreshment for travellers. The liquid can also be drawn off and concentrated to produce yacon syrup. The yacón is a species of perennial daisy traditionally
grown in the northern and central Andes from Colombia to northern Argentina for its crisp, sweet-tasting, tuberous roots.

Yacón grown at KoruKai Herb Farm, Banks Peninsula. Free from synthetic fertiliser, pesticides and herbicides.

One thing that should be in just about everyone's diet are fermented or cultured foods. Not only are they packed with flavor, but they're positively brimming with probiotics.

Those little microorganisms support your immune system and help to revive and maintain gut health. Fermented foods are also rich in B vitamins, food enzymes and key antioxidants that support healthy cells.

These multiplying onion are a great perennial plant. They have a thickened and fleshy leaf base similar to spring onions. They are used extensively throughout the East where they are essential in Chinese and Japanese cooking.

They are easy to grow, prolific and well worth the small space they take in the garden or in a pot on a sunny windowsill. Useful for pulling as spring onions or simply cut what you need at the base. Can be divided and re-planted every spring.
