Fenugreek Culture

As far as planting requirements what type of climate and soil is best suitable for fenugreek seed, what is the planting procedure and what is the waiting time before it matures? At what stage can I pick the leaves for daily tea therapy?

Fenugreek does best in well-drained, fertile, warm soil. The seeds germinate very quickly – in 2 to 3 days, if the soil is warm. Seed planted in the spring is ready for harvest in summer. If you can provide your planlets with enough sun and heat you should be able to harvest leaves in two months.
