  15. Hi vineela, am just going thro all your posts and find all your craft works really interesting...

    even i grow methi, but since the pot is small it stops growing after sometime.....how do you continuously grow methi? do you add the methi seeds again and again?

  20. Hi,

    Thanks for this helpful post. This is going to be my first time with gardening.

    When do you harvest methi leaves? Also once the leaves are taken out, do we have to sow methi seeds again or will they grow from the severed stalks like cilantro?

    Thanks,
    Nandini

  21. Hi Vineela,

    When is the right time to use the methi leaves? It's been 18 days since I sowed the seeds and they are now about 2 to 3 inches in height. Is this the correct time to harvest them? Some say it takes about a month for it to grow fully. Please let me know.

    Thanks,
    Nandini

  22. Hai Nandini
    During winter we cant grow methi.When temperature is ok we can grow.After sowed seeds for 3 to 4 weeks we get full grown methi.
