You can buy the turmeric roots at a grocery store.

Hi Deb and welcome!

Look in your grocery store! Some stores sell the root ... at least here in the USA. Turmeric comes from the Curcuma genus of the Ginger family - Curcuma longa is the genus and species of the particular plant used in cooking and herbal medicine.

Just a quick look on Google shows it available for order from Amazon and at least one seller on eBay (who does ship to Canada - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Fresh-Yellow-Turmeric-Root-1lb-curcu... ) if you can't find it locally. And what looks like some good information on growing here: http://www.gardeningblog.net/how-to-grow/turmeric/
