Sowing

  • Tulsi seeds can be sown directly in well-draining pot or raised beds.
  • Take off some top soil (2-3 inches) from the centre of pot and make room for seed sowing.
  • Sow Tulsi seeds evenly in the pit and cover them with soil.
  • Water the pot regularly. Keep the surface damp.
  • Your Tulsi seeds should germinate in 1 - 2weeks, depending on the season.
  • Keep your Tulsi pot in semi - shade when the germinated seedlings are growing.
  • Cut off any extra, weak seedlings from the base after two weeks of germination to ensure yourplants are evenly spaced.
Fill the cells/cups with a moist coco-peat medium

Caring

  • Once seedlings are growing, keep the Tulsi pot in direct sunlight.
  • For best growth and flavour, keep your Tulsi plant in a sunny location. However, Tulsi can also tolerate semi - shade.
  • Tulsi plant requires moderate light watering every day in summers and every alternate day in winters.
  • Add a handful of cow manureto your Tulsi plant every month.
  • Look for the early signs fungal infection/ insect infestation. If you notice any symptoms, spray appropriate medicines immediately.
  • Watch out for spider mites and small flying insects that infest the leaves.
  • Spray Neem Oil/Tobacco extract/soap water to keep insects at bay.
  • You can harvest your Tulsi leaves whenever you need them by cutting off growing leafy tips and foliage. We advise harvesting your tulsi leaves when they turn a little dry and crispy.
  • Never harvest more than one-third of growing plant at a time.
  • Keep pinching the growing tips & flowers of the plant as you harvest the foliage; this also helps the plant to attain bushy appearance.
  • Store dry tulsi leaves in an airtight container or a plastic zipper bag. Keep this in the refrigerator or freezer and use whenever required.
Hold the seeds and sow 2-3 seeds per cell/cup. Since Lavender seeds are small in size, do not sow them deep
