STEP 5 :

Now that your garden is started; you should know how to take care of your plants the optimal way.


1. Water your pots, twice a day if the sun is shining bright and once a day if it’s cloudy.


2. There may be more than one plant per hole in every pot as we had sown 2 seeds in each hole. Select the strongest-looking plant in each hole and kill(uproot) the rest.


3. Maintain a weekly spray of neem oil; Add 10 ml of neem oil in 1 liter of water and mix 2-4 drops of any liquid soap (dishwasher, handwash, detergent etc ). This will ensure the oil mixes with the water. Spray this mix on the leaves of all the plants for 7 days once.


4. Put abt 5 g of garden nutrients in each pot at 10-day intervals.



Harvesting


Spinach and methi seeds will germinate in 2-3 days. However, the coriander takes 10 days to germinate. Your Indian Herb garden will be ready for harvest after 35 days from the date of sowing. You can harvest the leaves by cutting the bigger ones and leaving the smaller ones to grow. Use up to 2-3 harvest for spinach and coriander. Methi can be harvested only once by uprooting.
