Tea growing at home


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?

Answers:

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.
