Know before you sow
Step by Step Growth Guide
Tulsi can be grown by direct method in pots or on raised / seed beds.
Take a pot with minimum diameter of 8". Fill it up with POT-O-MIX (Growing Medium)
If on seed beds then prepare the seedbed (Refer to Growing through seeds guidelines)
Sow the seeds at a depth of 0.3 cms. The seed are very tiny so take care that they are not sown deep.
Water very gently.
If growing on raised beds then keep a distance of 30 cms X 30 cms between plants as well as rows.
Provide shade till they germinate.
Tulsi seeds will germinate in 7 - 10 days. Gradually expose them to full sunlight in next 6 - 7 days.
Normally tulsi leaves are eaten hence we suggest use of BIOGRO for fertilisation and hearlty growth. Apply every 20 days to maintain lush growth.
Tulis leaves are ready for harvest in 45 - 50 days. Harvest the leaves that are little dry and crispy.
Do not over harvest.
Regular proming of growing tips and flowers is needed to achieve a fuller growth.
The plant continues to grow for a very long time.
