    Growing Tulsi plant

    Topic started by Mini Jyothish (@ ool-182d08b2.dyn.optonline.net) on Wed Jan 15 10:46:08 .


    Hi,
    I got some dry Tulsi seeds from India...(I stay in CT, USA) now, I need some help/advice in planting them...has anyone grown a tulsi plant in eastern states of US. I want to know where should I keep the pot outside/inside and when should I plant it now, or in spring/summer? And also, can I put any fertilizer for tulsi..?

    Thnx
    Mini

    Hi Mini Jyothish,
    Yes, you can grow Thulasi any where in US. It would be advisable to wait until the warm weather to plant the seeds. Seeds require warm soil temperature for them to sprout. You may plant them in a pot or in the ground during warm weather. When you plant them outside, make sure that you do so after the last freeze.
    Thulasi will die down in winter if planted out side, but you can collect the seeds for the next season, and start all over again.
    If you place them in a pot, during cold weather you can bring the plants inside to protect them from the cold.
    Hope this helps.

    Read your query and a good response too on subject.
    We, also from the Indian origin, had planted Tulsi seeds in a earthen pot during Spring and the plants did fairly well until winter when they died. However, this spring we planted in our backyard several Tulsi plants, which were offered to us by a friend in Austin, and they are doing much better in the ground thus far. So you might plant the Tulsi seeds both in the flower pot as well as in the ground at the same time.

    I am sure that you are well aware that the Tulsi plant is one of the most sacret and widely worshipped plants in India. It has countless number of benefits both on health and in a home where a Tulsi plant in grown and worshipped.

    Can anyone tell me if its possible to grow jasmine flowers in the US? I live in a rainy place, but I get sunshine for 4-5 months in a year. Any kind is okay - mullai, gundu malli, jaathi, kaatu malli...
    Are there any florists in the US who sell strings of jasmine?

    www.logees.com in CT sells jasmine (jasminium), tulsi (ocimum sanctum) and curry leaves plants (murraya coenigi)

    They do well in pots if proper care is taken
