Growing Fenugreek (લીલી મેથી)

 

Steps for growing in pot/container

  1. Find a suitably sized pot or container. I used basic aluminium foil wide container. Do some small holes for excess water drainage. IMG_20160301_154749
  2. Add potting mix (sand).I used miracle grow potting mix.
  3. Sprinkle the fenugreek seeds on the soil which is easily available in every indian kitchen.
  4. Spread very thin layer of sand just to cover the seeds.
  5. Add water to help sand to set down properly.
  6. Keep watering the plants regularly but only in small amounts. The plant does not need regular sun light so you can put it in your patio at any place.
