More Information

A native of tropical Asia, Galangal is sometimes mistaken for ginger but it’s roots are generally larger and firmer.  It adds an exotic kick of flavour to Thai and Indonesian dishes and while it grows makes a highly ornamental garden or patio plant.

 

Grow in a sunny spot in the garden when all danger of frost has passed.  Alternatively grow in a container or in a greenhouse.  Use free-draining soil or compost and keep the plant moist but not waterlogged.

In the UK, Blue Ginger will grow to a height of 50-100cms (20-40 inches)

Harvesting – Dig up the entire plant with care, easing it out of the bed or container with a fork and avoiding damage to the rhizomes.  Hose all soil from the roots before carefully teasing them apart and trimming off the top growth.  The trimmed rhizomes can be used at once or stored in the freezer.

Hetty's Herbs
We are currently dispatching orders within 8 working days from the day we receive an order, with many orders being dispatched sooner.  

Each week the plants to complete orders are selected from the nursery, packaged and dispatched daily, with plants usually delivered to you the next day.  Each potted plant will arrive individually wrapped and the greatest of care will be given to ensure they arrive fresh and there is no damage during transportation. Orders aren't sent out on a Friday to reduce the risk of plants still being in transit over the weekend, although in our experience if plants are delayed we find they usually travel very well.

Hetty will send you an email once your order has been dispatched. For plant orders we use a DPD 24 hour service, although this isn’t guaranteed, DPD will send you an email and/or SMS messages to let you know how your order is tracking and the expected one hour delivery time slot. If you may not be available to take delivery of your order please enter alternative instructions (maximum of 50 characters) in your order details. Hetty highly recommends downloading the DPD App as you can track your order and update delivery instructions if need be.  

Non-plant only orders may be sent via a Royal Mail 48 hour service.

You can also view the status of your order if you have registered for a Hetty's account, not if you have shopped as a guest.

Many plants are 'ready now' and available to dispatch in the current dispatch cycle whilst other plants can be 'pre-ordered' to be be delivered in a few weeks. Hetty may at her discretion sometimes chose to split an order for no additional charge.

With over 200 varieties of plants grown over the season one of our biggest challenges is to predict the exact number of plants available at any one time.  We get it right most of the time but with so many factors affecting plants occaisionally when we go to select the plants for an order we find the plants are not available to pick.  This can be for a number of reasons such as the weather delaying plants being ready in a new batch or plants nearing the end of a batch not being of a high enough quality. Hetty will make contact if your order is affected to discuss the next step which could be to offer a substitute, place your order on hold or to provide a refund.   

There is a minimum order value of £25.00 for all orders. Delivery is charged for most mainland UK addresses at £6.00 or £3.00 for orders of only seeds. For orders over £100 delivery is free for most mainland UK addresses. Delivery to parts of Scotland and the Scottish Highlands and Island will incur an additional delivery charge which will automatically be added at the checkout.  Please note that we are unable to offer delivery to the Isle of Man, the Isle of Wight, Northern Ireland, Scottish Islands, Channel Islands or to any address outside of the UK at the present time.

For more information on our order, delivery, cancellation and returns processes please see our terms and conditions.  If however you have any questions or would like further information, then please contact us.
