Could you please tell me what this plant is

I am not sure Carmel – to ID a plant I need a flower as well as leaves. At a guess, it could be a ginger of some sort (even maybe a Turmeric. Dig around the roots and cut off a bit of the thick rhizome (root). Smell it for ginger or yellow colour for Turmeric. Don
