Hi Juanita,
Yes, I currently have one which is 1.5 meter tall in a small pot (30 cms) and has been in there since year 2000. When it was young it was under the eaves facing north too.
Due to limited space it does not produce lots of leaves but it is enough for a family. Please note that they may drop leaves in winter but come back in Spring. I had one small one 30 cm tall on the ground before having this one and it died after 2 years. With yours you should speed up the growing by giving it some dynamic lifter before winter so the chance to get through winter is greater. Good luck.

Hi Tran,
Based from your experience, it seems it thrives better in pot than it's on the ground?... I still have another small one in the pot just in case this one on the ground doesn't make it..Yeah, i've noticed they usually drop their leaves in winter (semi-dormant)& bounce back in spring.Thanks for your dynamic lifter's advice, i'll do that.

Most indians in Perth grow it in a pot so it can be moved away from cold in the winter.

Bit hard to do if planted in the ground, grows just as good either way except for the frosts.

Hi Juanita,

Your big one shouls be OK because it is next to the brick wall. During the day bricks absorb heat and release heat at night so it is ok. The same as the little one.

Years ago, mine was on the ground but in the middle of the garden so it did not survive.

Good luck.

Hi Tran,

They both seem to be doin ok in that sheltered spot under the eaves facing north next to the brick wall where they always get warm from the afternoon sun & the brick wall...I'll also give them some protection like clear plastic (polycarbonate?)against cold wind/frost comes winter...I gave them some dynamic lifter too, thanks for your advice.

I have only tried seed sowing and it works for me. It is a very slow process it may take 2 months to see the little pointy top appear. You can check by digging the soil and see if anything happend. It would be faster in greenhouse but it is OK outside as well.

Epson salt seems to aid the gemination process (see packet instructions for more detail how to use it) , give it a try. Try to grow seeds as fresh as possible in the season (March onward) may be the key.

good luck.

Curry Leaf Tree needs full sun position. It is a Tropical tree and thrives in the sunshine. Here in Perth the soil is mostly sand. The soil was fortified with lawn clippings (mulch) and chicken manure.
Pic 1: OUR FRONT-YARD CURRY Leaf TREE ABOUT 16ft tall- planted by my wife some 25 to 30 years ago as a small plant.
It is now about 16 ft tall and 10 feet in diameter.
Pic 2: Backyard Curry Leaf Tree about 18ft tall X 10 ft Dia. Planted same time as a small plant some 25 to 30 years ago

Ours is growing well in typically unconditioned clay soils here in Adelaide. has survived the last four 0-15 degree winters here no problems (The Cold is the problem in Adelaide - not the rain! hehehe drought here). keep the plants close to the house or to a fence to avoid the frosts & chilling winds.

The Nurseries in my area last year were selling them from $18. The local market nursery had plants from Adelaide which were no where near the quality of mine, for $20. He bought plants from me which he sold straight away. I think $10 for my plants is an excellent deal.

All the 12" curry leaf plants I had available have sold on e-bay. Will have more of this size available in about 6 weeks. The smaller size is $8, postage $7.00 packed in peat moss and only posted on a Monday to ensure quality delivery. Pick up with cash is the preferred option.

This is how my in ground curry leaf tree looks like now, after losing the old leaves, new leaves are coming out & growing some seeds as well..I might have to pinch off most of the seeds so plant's energy will channel towards growing leaves.

There is a curry leaf plant growing very well in the ground at the Sydney botanic gardens, in the herb section. I have planted mine in the ground, seems fine. Cutting off the seeds might help it bush? Mine is growing like a bean pole. I got it from Engals Nursery, I believe they grew it from seed.

Hi Sharma,

Both my curry leaf plants inground & pot aren't goin yellow yet, in fact they're growing new leaves & some offshoots as well. Give them seaweed liquid fertiliser forthnightly till the end of May then stop fertilising during winter (june-aug) & give them some chook poo (dynamic lifter), that's all i do & they're doin so well...I'll post latest pics next time.

Don't know if it;s of any help - but some asian grocery stores sell these plants - probably heaps of these shops in melb? there are in Perth. if not they could probably help you with seeds. They often stock other seeds too, I am trying a "yam bean tuber" only problem is all instructions in asian and I can;t understand!

Hi folks,

Richard I am amazed by that huge Murraya. its at least 3 times the size of the biggest one i have ever seen.

In Melbourne you can get Murraya koenigii curry leaf tree from Pots Galore, 2 doors down from Gardenworld on springvale rd. bigger specimens & for much less $$. they also have mangoes, tropical guavas, and many more (but limited compared to gardenworld).

also try Wantirna markets for Murraya i found a clone with bigger leaves than i've ever seen. at least 3times larger than my other regular one.
there are some variations:

http://www.bhatia-nurseries.com/curry.htm

I'll add that cuttings IME are extremely difficult to root. suckers are okay but it seems not every plant produces them. They grow pretty well in Mel, theres one down the road from me a few metres tall. select a sheltered warm spot like next to a brick wall etc. feed and water regularly over the warmer months and they can grow quite fast.

Wantrina market is also good for fruit trees incl. citrus, deciduous fruit and tropicals (have seen tropical guava, lychee and mango).

hi Lyn,

http://www.bhatia-nurseries.com/curry.htm

see that link.
i'm not sure re: fragrant.
As said i got one locally with far larger leaves than the norm.
I cannot distinguish it olfactorily from my other ones.

possibly they are mere seedling variations, i have not seen any named cultivars/varieties available locally. they are invariably labelled generically as 'Curry Leaf Tree'.

grow many from seed and see what you get ;).
for enhanced genetic diversity you could get several starting stock plants, making sure they are all from different sources. then do some selective breeding with the seedlings for desired characteristics.
of course, this sort of project would entail many years of attention and devotion.

thought it might be worth mentioning that generally only fresh seed germinates reliably.
they can self-seed well.

Lyn, there is definitely two types of curry plant. One has smaller and much rounder leaves and the fragrance is stronger than the other. I have seen the other when I was overseas and it is much stronger in frangrance and the leaves were darker in colour and round in shape.

Hi Marie,

Thanks for the confirmation. I wonder if anyone has the more frangrant variety here. The ones I know here has the larger leaves.

Dear Lyn

I have attached a photo of the more fragrant curry plant with seeds on it (I was fortunate enough to take a photo of the plant whilst on holiday as I was unable to import it) and the other of course is the common curry plant which is found here in Australia. If anyone has any advice on the importation of these plants from overseas please let me know - tks.

Hi Juanita,
My curry plant is growing well at the moment is just 4 inches in the ground... when i planted it 2 months ago had shed all its leaves now new shoots have come up and doing well.
TIP TO ALL GROWERS from my experience......
Neglect the curry plant and it will grow Plant it in a sunny position where it has good drainage.
15 days once water it with seasol.

Juanita, the tree is not very tall. It looks more like a smallish shrub right now. But it has lots of lovely green leaves, so I am thankful for that!

I am hoping that as it gets older it will eventually develop a strong root system and one day just start to grow like crazy.

Also, Juanita, you are wise to have planted the tree near a brick wall. This is an excellent position because the brick will trap the sun's heat during the day and give it off at night, keeping the tree warmer in winter.

Hi,
A friend gifted me with a small plant which she found growing off the roots of her big curry leaf tree in the garden. I've planted it in a large pot and placed it next to a wall where it gets full morning sun, but shade in the afternoon. Its being doing fine for 3 weeks now, but yesterday I noticed light brown patches on young leaves which is more like burnt marks. Can anyone please tell me if this is some kind of a disease or if it could be a result of the recent heatwave. i have googled this in many differnt ways, but couldnt find any details of common diseases on curry leaf plants.

Grubs says...
I got my curry leaf tree in the mail today from Daleys. Its a picture of health about 40cm high.

I can either plant it in the ground now... or...I could plant it in a big pot that I can place into my glasshouse during winter and wait until the plant is bigger before transplanting it outside.

Any thoughts of whether growing bigger in a pot is likely to give it any advantage in surviving winter once planted outside? Perhaps time in a pot is no real benefit (inferior roots, transplant shock?) ?shrug?

I'd keep it in its existing pot or a larger pot until it's bigger if I were you, Pete. When they are bigger they are more robust.
Also it might need some time to acclimatize to our Melbourne latitudes.
Give it regular doses of Seasol and Powerfeed or similar liquid ferts to make it grow as fast as possible and wait till next spring to put it in the ground.
That's my 2 cents' worth!

You can get them also in Pot garlore or Garden world in springvale. They grow very last in Summer so the small one will do. As long as you give it some blood and bone and plenty of water.

We found that it is good to pot them in containers (approx 40cm diameter). This helps retain water in summer, insulates in winter, and means you can move it when neccessary.
Keep dry and well mulched in winter as frost kills the leaves. Needs lots and lots of water in summer to produce healthy leaves

If there's anyone else in Melbourne wanting a tree, I saw some potted curry leaf trees for sale at Dandenong Market on Tuesday. Didn't note how much they were but they looked to be a good size.

You can also purchase packaged leaves from one of the stallholders in the fruit & vege section (the one with lots of Asian food across the aisle from the herb guy right at the back).

This is my curry leaf tree which is about 9 years old. Every year I cut it down to waist height in Spring and it takes off again in Summer. This year I have cracked the secret in germinating the seeds and have about eighty (80) of them growing. There were thousands of seeds this year. Next year I should start to market them. I find that people are too scared to plant them in the ground.

Hi Sampa
Don't be afraid to prune it at the main trunk as it will put out new shoots. Amanda's theory of just sticking it in the pot will work in a warm climate like WA but with very poor results in Melbourne.

Hi Sampa
Wait for the weather to warm up before you prune or the new shoots will be burned off by the frost.
Curry leaf grows like weeds in NSW, WA & QLD but not in a cold climate place like Melbourne, unless you give it the right conditions.

I have plants but I should advise that it is not a good time to buy curry plants. You are better off holding on till early summer.I can be contacted on 9776 0494. Varying sizes of plants are available and they start at $8.

Hi Sanju

You do not need to water them everyday once in two to three days is enough.The best position for the plant is where it gets the morning sun. In my experience in positions which recieve the afternoon sun it can scorch the plants slightly.In Perth people have their curry plants on the ground.If you have your plant in a smaller pot you can put it in a larger pot. Once the plant is established and growing then during the next summer period you can put it on the ground, where it will grow into a tree.

Hi
About 2 yrs ago I bought a curry plant from the market and kept the plant inside the house during winter. Then I planted in the ground. It was growing healthy but during 2010 winter I covered the tree with green net. I noticed the tender leaves tend to burn out. Since the winter is over I removed the covering net. But still there is no improvement on the tender leaves. Could anyone please give some advice?

Mine grows in the ground here in Melbourne...but I'm thinking of moving it into a pot simply because of it's pest potential. It's currently in a west-facing bed, so gets the sun most of the day & is up against a brick wall. It flowers every year but hasn't grown particularly quickly. I don't bother covering it in winter - whilst our garden isn't frost-free, it must be warm enough where it is that it isn't worried by the cold. Anyway...my point to all this ramble is that last year, I cut the flowers off but if anyone in Melbourne wants seeds, I could let mine continue flowering if you like & send you some seed (it's flowering at the moment).

Hello Deva
For best results curry plant should be planted in an area of your property which gets the morning sun. Afternoon sun sometimes tends to scorch young plants.Curry plants especially young plants tends to look ragged after a winter in Melbourne. Now it is the time to regularly fertilize around the plants using a mixture of either Urea or Ammonium sulfate, Superphosphate and Potash or use a premixed fertilizer having these components. Once this is done you will find the curry plants start putting out new flushes of growth. When the plant is grown to 2-3 feet above the ground, during middle of spring you can lightly prune the plant which will induce it to put more branches with new flushes of growth and will make make the plant more bushier.

Hi All.
A location where the plant gets the morning sun only is best. Plants tend to do better when planted next to a wall/ fence. Water well about once a week. Avoid wetting the leave during hot weather. I don't know if anyone has noticed, but there are 2 varieties of curry leaf plants. Some with darker, bigger, greener and flatter leaves (which don't do too well planted outside, and need all year round shelter and the more curved, lighter green leaves with pink/green stems plants do quite well outdoors and can handle colder and hot weather a lot better.

For planting the curry leaf berries, pluck them when they turn a dark purple, and plant straight away in potting mixture. If the weather is cold, it will stay dormant till its ready to grow. May take months, but the seedling will grow.

FYI: All mature trees would be flowering during this period 09th December 2010. If you don't want the seeds, break the flower from the stem, and the tree will bare more branches and leaves!! Lightly prune tree early spring for a better growth.

All plants need fertilizer to keep healthy.

Good luck.

Thanks Mano!
My plant (stem) is more than 3 feet high and it was planted in a corner of two fences at the back. The third side is protected by a garden shed in order to protect from wind. It receives sun after 11 am. Recently I noticed that there is a tiny shoot appearing. Can I use cow manure or compose instead of the chemicals you mentioned?
regards

You need to frequently use fertilizers during spring/summer to induce new growth. Good quality cattle manure can if available used as a supplement and helps in maintaining moisture and friabilty of the soil and also provide nutrition to the plants. The quality of Cattle manure which is available in some petrol sheds etc are much to be desired and are collected from where animals are penned for the night and include largely soil materials. Well rotted Horse manure is a good substitute but beware of weed growth from seeds in manure.

Hi Mano,

We had a curry leaves plant which was grown in a pot for the first 5 years and then planted in the ground for another 6 years. last year all the leaves were fallen and I pruned the tree expecting to get new branches with leaves in the last summer. But it did not give any new shoots or leaves It was almost 2 m high. I have no idea wether it is dead or alive. Is there any advise on this? It was planted

Where can I get big curry leaves plant in Melbourne? Please give the adress.

Hello Jasmine

I really can't think of an answer, considering the number of years the plant has been in the pot/ground.My son had a similar size plant in a pot and he had a very severe pest infestation.He pruned it very hard recently and its now full of new shoots.I have several large plants for sale. If you need one contact me on 9776 0494.

I have a good news! I covered the stem of my plant with a 100mm plastic tubing to protect from damaging by my pet rabbits roaming around in my property. To my surprise after a couple of weeks I saw a few new shoots appeared inside the tubing. I waited till the new shoots seen above the tube and cut the old stem above where the shoots started. I did not apply any fertilizers as I felt I put a lot of compose when I planted it. Now it looks healthy.

Bunnings (in WA) has started getting the plants in too.

Amanda, mine has really taken off in a pot this summer,but it looked near dead as a seedling in the greenhouse last winter.
I tasted a leaf the other day & was surprised it didnt taste or smell like curry. I once had the curry plant Helichrysum italicum that really smelled like curry & we used a tiny bit in curries although we are now told it is inedible!

Hi Mano! My curry plant has grown upto 1.5 metres. It looks healthy now but I am worried when the winter comes.What is the best time to prune so that it would branch out sideways? By the way how tall your plants which are for sale. I met some people in Wantirna and Carribbean Markets. They want to buy curry plants.

Curry plants should be pruned in late spring/summer to induce branching. The flower buds also need to be removed as & when they appear in early stages of the plant. This ensures sufficient food to promote more leaf growth.

You can just plant the seed, and get more plants. The leaves are used usually, not the seeds. They germinate pretty easily. Just make sure they're dried first. If you have any spare, I'd love a few. My tree gave up the fight this year. In my area, we grow it in pots, and bring it in in Winter, they really hate frost.

Maha says...
Ric,
You should plug the fruits when they are dark in colour. Get the green seed out and plant it straight. or place it in water for 12 hours or so before planting.

Please note that the seeds are viable only of they are planted within 7 days. Never dry the seed as it won't germinate.

You are better off planting them on a paper cup filled with seed raising mix. Please make sure that the seeds are placed just below the soil/potting mix surface. If you plant them too deep then it won't germinate.

Usually it takes about 2 weeks to germinate. Please keep them moist and place them under shade.

The above technique worked for me.

My plant is in a pot about the size of an 8 litre bucket half full of soil and in a shadeclothed area that gets about 2 hrs of directly overhead sun every day. It is becoming very spindly,about 60cm tall, probably trying to climb towards the sun. I am going to halve the height and transplant to new soil when I take the seed pods off.

Hi all, sorry about the time delay, I have been very busy with other pursuits. I tried to dry my seeds out but alas, they were attacked by a hoard of ants and when I finally defeated the ants on the seeds, I discovered that they had also eaten all the seeds I had planted out as well. Now I have no seeds or new seedlings, much to my dismay. Oh well, there's always next year

I ahve a tree planted outside, grown upto 1.6 metres. It looked healthy before May. In May the tender leaves started to shrink and the leaves started falling. It is normal in the winter. Should I take any precautions to protect the tree from dying. Last Sunday I saw a few curry leaves trees in pots in the Wantirna Market and they were very healthy. When I asked the seller whether he keeps them inside the glass house and he replied "No". He leaves them outside with other plants.Could anyone please advice on this

It grows very well in Perth. Plant it near a brick wall, as they like the heat and warm weather. To get rid of the insects, spray some organic pesticide.

Sorry for this late notice. I was away. Most of the bigger plants are gone. I got a few really small ones that I keeping them mostly indoor esp during cold frosty nights. DO you want to wait till late spring when they are more established and ready for the outdoor? Since they are small, they are at $4 per pot now. I am near footscray too...

Hi,

Mei: They are seedling plants that i cultivated just before winter from seeds collected from a flowering adult plant I have at home. They are about 5 to 8 cm now and will grow rapidly when the climate soon gets warmer in Spring/summer. I am happy to send/post pictures of them.

MV: Do you have a email/ tel contact to reach you?

These grow like weeds in our yard in western sydney. To the extent that we have cut them back to stump and within 2 months they are huge again. Can't even kill the blighters with blackberry poison. I'm surprised at how difficult others are finding them to grow when we can't seem to kill them off! They sprout all over the property. Have had to grind the stumps right out and so far so good.

Pedro says...
Hi everyone just to let you know that these curry leaf plants are available at many weekend markets real good healthy ones i have had them in large pots and they have grown to about 6 ft in about 3 yrs A good idea would be to never let it flower and that keeps it getting more leaves but if let to seed then it stops the gowth of leaves.since the leaves are what is used,During the cold months i have kept them close to other bushy trees sorta protect them form the cold and they have had leaves all the time until spring when they start to sprout new ones and grow bigger.A tip to get more leaves is to clip the tops off only if the plant is growing well for a well bushy and rounded tree which otherwise tend to grow tall and lanky.

Hi,

I have 2 small plants in pots about 6 inches. Leaves of both plants have become sleepy and are drooping. Is it normal. Is it due to them being in small pots or does it need watering often?

Kindly advise.

Asim, its quite normal for cool climates. Even here in WA my curry leaf tree( which is nearly a metre tall) went yellow, & droopy. I have planted it out in my herb garden, trimmed the top off to bush it out & already its showing new growth in the top leaf axils. We have had some warm weather which makes all the difference to these trees so yours will show promise soon.

To anyone in Perth's northern suburbs that is looking for curry leaf trees, there is a lady at the Girrawheen markets held every Saturday morning that sells them. I purchased mine there about 6 weeks ago, cost me $8 and have transplanted it into a bigger pot and is very healthy and growing well.

I have a curry leaf plant aged about 4 years in the pot. This is about 1.5 mtr tall. I noticed that patches of bark is missing on the trunk and also on the branches. This could be that something is eating the park or may be some pest. This is exposing the inner stem (like dead would). What this could be and is there a way to stop this happening.

Hi All

I've been trying to grow the curry leaf plant from seedlings off my main plant many times (4th attempt now) and everytime they die (could be wrong time planting). This time I have 3 good strong ones left, might kill it in the end, fingers cross and currently we are having a heat wave and 4 other plants have lost it's leaves and is left like twigs but I can see tiny buds. Unfortunately, even under the patio away from the scorching sun with the blinds ever so slightly opened the tiny buds and leaves off my seedlings go black or on the leaves slightly faded in colour. I wonder why is that? Could it be because of the the intense heat. I have been sprinkle watering it every morning and evening.

Hi there, I am amazed at how long this has been going for. I was just trying to see what was the best way to get some seeds to grow. I am in Sydney. I have seeds from my dads tree in Bondi which is nearly 25 years old which came from our first tree in our old house which was originally from a seed that my grandmother smuggled in from Singapore about 35 years ago! I have a little plant which I have been babying for about 2 years which is basically a shoot from my dads tree roots. I tried last year with about 30 seeds and not one worked. Any suggestions on my next batch of seed? Some are still soft and others are starting to dry. Getting my dad to get more off the tree this weekend.

You have to grow them from very fresh seeds i.e. take them out while they are still in the fresh ripe fruit and plant immediately.

I don't think they're fussy; just make sure they don't dry out. In fact if you didn't want to grow so many just pushing a fruit back into the soil under the tree would do (I do this with chillies too).

Hi Dilshani,

It seems shedding its bark has no adverse effect on the tree, it's thriving well w/ lots of green healthy leaves..It could be the tree is gettin rid of the old barks but im checking on it regularly in case there's any changes

Thanks for the reply. My tree is only very young. Someone told me it might die as some pest is eating into the bark.

In Sydney the tree is deciduous; it's bare in winter but always comes back in spring.

I have had my curry leaf tree for about 3 years now.This tree has very few branches of leaves growing and from browsing on the forum, some members have luscious looking trees. It also has somewhat split into two. Can anybody tell me if this tree has grown into two different plants? Any advise on how I can grow my tree to be more 'luscious' would be much appreciated.

I have also attached another picture with what looks like a swollen branch (similar to a diseased lemon tree caused by the citrus gall wasp). Do Curry Leaf Trees suffer from the same?

Kee, to keep them lush, just small but regular amount fertilizer, plenty of sun and water (I keep mine in shallow dish of water in summer - hates dry.) The plant can sucker from the roots, so that'd be why you now have 2 plants in the pot :)

Thanks VF. Should I try to split the two plants or would it be ok to leave them as is? Would it stop the plant from getting lush if I leave them be (since I am assuming nutrients will be divided between both).

The pot they are in now is a self watering one, would this do?

Thanks again.

Personally, I'd seperate them while they're small - easier to divide now, easier to look after(such as when re-potting), and they're more likely to be healthier as won't be competing. Also tip prune to keep lush if you don't use leaves often - I find that using it a fair bit on occassions acts like a prune, and it responds well.The SW pot is fine, but make sure soil is well drained, and keep a little drier when cooler weather.

Thanks VF. Wish me luck!! - I hope I do not end up killing the plant as I haven't the slightest idea of how to separate plants. Thanks again for being so helpful.

Can anyone tell me why my curry leaves plant lost its flavour? It used to smell right when the plant was young. Now that it is about 50cm tall, the leaves lost their taste. Is it due to too much sun? It gets about 5 hours of direct sunlight everyday. Too much water? Not enough fertilizer? Any idea is appreciated. Thanks.

Curry Tree seeds growing like mad now!

I planted about 30 seeds in normal potting mix from the mother tree 4 weeks ago and nearly all of them have sprouted. It seems like now is a good time to germinate them.

The tree was loaded with seeds but unfortunately something ate the rest within a few days so it must have been the possums. I guess that proves that the seeds are not poisonous like some claim.

If you have fresh seeds, get a 5$ seed germinator from bunnings, fill with seeding mixture. The most important thing is not to bury the seed. Leave the seed on top of the soil and keep it moist and warm inside the room. The seeds will germinate in 7 days. I have grown more than twenty and given to friends.

In Carrum Downs Vel spices you get healthy curry leaf plants.

Be aware that curry leaves do drop all their leaves in colder weather. Mine used to be bare throughout winter though thanks to climate change it's keeping its leaves for most of the year but I am in Sydney.

I have 2 curry plant/ trees about 3 years old and approx. 1.5 m tall. Being of Indian ethnicity, I use the leaves to flavour our food.

Of late both the plants that were green and my pride are dying …all the leaves have turned yellow and the branches are becoming hard

Please advise if I can still hope for the best

Sorry to hear that your trees are looking unhealthy. They don't like strong winds, or too much watering but need to fertilize every six months or so...I have a couple of 2 metre trees and some smaller ones, they seem to thrive with little care, so long as you keep them in a protected environment. Too sunny, too windy and they will not do that well. I'm not sure about out where you are. At 1.5 m, i feel they are still young. I know people say that they thrive in full sun, but not when they are young...that has been my experience. Do they need repotting or is the soil okay...if it's not the position, then it could be they are lacking some nutrients and need to add some good soil and liquid fertilizer (very diluted). Good luck (if repotting ensure least root disturbance!)

You need to prune back the tree around late spring/summer for it to bush up. I have established curry leaf plants (around 5-6 year old) and happy to sell them. Some are are larger than others, if any one is interested

Hey you guys are all very lucky as you can buy these tropical herbs easily in mainland. I really would love to get hold of a moringa plant. But unfortunately no one can send the seeds nor plants to Tasmania. I don't know if anyone has it here.
Cheers.
