This amazing herb is among the most useful that you can grow as all stages of the plant/seed have culinary uses. Young sprouts are often used in salads, ground seeds are a common ingredient to curry powder, and the ddried leaves are used to flavor Indian and Middle Eastern dishes. This erect aromatic annual produces richly scented, creamy yellow, pea-like flowers that will be a welcome addition to your herb garden.

Medicinal Uses:
Based on the available evidence, fenugreek has benefits for lowering blood sugar levels, boosting testosterone, and increasing milk production in breastfeeding mothers. Fenugreek may also reduce cholesterol levels, lower inflammation, and help with appetite control, but more research is needed in these areas

Growing Instructions:
To improve germination rates, soak the seeds for 24 hours prior to sowing.

Fenugreek can be difficult to transplant, so direct sowing is the best option. This herb thrives in full sun and rich, well-draining soil, but will grow in just about any kind of soil. A warm weather plant, it should be planted several weeks after the last spring frost. Sow the seeds thickly 1/4" deep, thinning to 4" apart when the seedlings appear. Fenugreek makes an excellent container plant and can be sprouted for microgreens.
