This year’s Florida summer heat and rain must be ideal for the Curry Leaf Plants to grow its leaves & branches, but without any flowers (yet). Micro climate in my garden? Maybe. Curry Leaf Bush & her companions ~ Comfrey & Jicama ~ an experiment that has so far turned out very well.
I also have a lanky tree-like plant (I call her Ms Lanky) growing next to the guest room wall. The micro climate idea (which I got while staying in a little hotel in Tampa, run by an Indian family whose Curry Leaf Plant grew like a monster next to a concrete wall) seems to be working well over the last 3 winters.
Yes, the concrete wall with the afternoon sun stays warm after sunset which helps keep Ms Lanky to stay productive and green while The Bush loses some leaves and hibernates under a frost cover. That’s my year-round system for Curry Leaf supply & my southern-wall shade ‘tree’/heat insulator.
I also realize that when well fed & happy, they also produce babies via their roots, not necessarily from seeds… & here are ‘Baby Rooties 1 and 2’ .
Mother Nature works wonders, so I just have to see where she allows me to grow what I like & follow her lead.
Oh, and Curry Leaf Plants loooove coffee grounds.
