Tell me, I heard that you can grow ordinary tea on the windowsill. How to grow it properly and where to buy seeds or planting material?


Tea seeds are free to order online. You can purchase and order in specialized garden stores. In cultivation does not require special skills. Before planting, soak the seeds in a growth stimulator (or just in water) for 2-3 days. Throw away the seeds that surfaced, and those on the bottom we sow in a pot. The pot should be with drainage and soil composition: coniferous soil (at the bottom of the pot), peat (top layer). Sow to a depth of 3mm, top up a little with water and cover with a piece of glass (greenhouse effect). Watch out for humidity.

After 2-3 months, the seeds germinate. In a year, tea growth will reach 30cm. At this stage, you can transplant into a wider pot. Tea requires regular watering and a bright place. Before flowering, replace watering with spraying. Rinse with fertilizer once a season.
