Plants you can grow from a kitchen/terrace Gardening

Today we are growing herbs from some spices from our kitchen. We will be learning step by step how we can use some ingredients from the kitchen to grow some herbs.

we will be growing some coriander (dhania) and fenugreek(methi).

STEP 1:- Get some dhania and methi seeds from supermarkets or Kirana shops. Do not buy seeds from the plant shop as the seeds are chemically treated so that they can grow fast. So, we are avoiding chemically treated seeds and instead, we are using dhania and methi that we use for cooking.

STEP 2:- Take some dhania and put it on tissue paper or newspaper and put some pressure on the dhania so that the outer cover of dhania is broken. To make it germinate we need to put some pressure on the dhania.

STEP 3:- Now take a 15-inch pot with soil having the organic matter in it. All we need to do is add the dhania into the soil. Cover the dhania about half an inch with the soil and add some water into it. Make sure that adding water does not cause the seeds to expose.

STEP 4:- Now take some fenugreek (methi)seeds and add them directly uniformly over the soil having the organic matter in a 15-inch pot.

STEP 5:- Pour some water on it. Do not expose the seeds.

STEP 6:- Place both the pots in partial sunlight. Partial sunlight means that the pot does not get direct sunlight during the noontime.

STEP 7:- After two weeks u can see the herbs growing out from the seeds

I am going to be very happy when you see the fruit coming out so stay tuned the followed blogs below.
