The blog www.growyourowncurry.co.uk includes regular updates on what it takes to put together a show like this and helpful GYO factsheets to grow these ingredients at home. From ginger and turmeric to lemongrass and curry leaves there is something to tickle everyone’s tastebuds as well as a host of easy recipes to use the harvested ingredients.
