I have wondered many times that even after posting about gardening frequently how come I never posted about growing curry leaves, an integral herb in Indian cooking. You’d be hard pressed to find an Indian dish that’s not seasoned with these uniquely tasting leaves. I have been growing them successfully in pots since 2014. So here’s a video tutorial on how to grow curry leaf in a pot. The video is in my mother tongue, Malayalam, but there are English subtitles. Did you know there are 3 different types of curry leaves?
I have tried to make it as informative as possible, covering everything from how to prune, fertilize curry leaf plants, common pests and pest control, and for those us in colder climates winter care, when we have to bring this tropical plant indoors in winter.
Here’s is curry leaf plant collection. I grow both the dwarf and gamthi variety. As I mentioned in the video my two smaller plants have had pest issues that I was able to control well in time.
Hope this video about how to grow curry leaf in a pot was helpful to you. Please let me know if you have any questions in the comments. Literally every one of my gardening friends grow curry leaves and will be able to answer any questions that I might not have an answer to.
