Cultivation: Prepare fertile, well-drained soil. Soak seeds 4-8 hours before planting. Sow seeds in late spring/summer after last frost in a warm, sunny location. Plants grow well in mild climate. Fenugreek does not transplant well. Harvest older leaves and pinch back flower buds for continuous leaf production. For spice production, uproot entire plants in early to mid-fall and hang them in a cool, dry location until the seeds are dry. Remove the dry seeds from the pods.
Please note: Maturity, adaptability and disease tolerance may differ under your specific climate and/or growing conditions.
Culinary tips: Fenugreek leaves can be used dried or fresh, seeds as spice, used as a vegetable like spinach, and as microgreens.
