I have recently bought a Curry Leaf plant here in San Diego, Southern California. The place where I got it is called Exotica Rare Fruit Nursery in Vista. They also accept mail-orders. They even have Allahabadi guava and Indian Mango and Banana plants, if you are interested. Their phone # is (760) 724-9093

"Generally, they should not be given fertilizer during the winter and fall months. Watering alone should suffice. If the leaves start to turn yellow, then a little fertilizer can be given. But during the Spring and Summer months, they should be fed on a regular basis (approx. 2-3 times a week). "The one reccomended by the growers is Peters brand fertilizer with a ratio of (20-10-20). They prefer it to Miracle grow with the same ratio becaue Peters has less salt buildup. "When transplanting the new plant from its greenhouse container, use a 4-inch clay pot and use potting soil."
Posted by Pearl (prenaker@yahoo.com) on Sun, Jun 10, 01 at 20:49 Pacific Tree Farms in southern California sells curry leaf trees by mail order (for all those in the SF Bay area and beyond who are interested).

I bought one from there (about 2 feet high) and it is doing fine... it did drop all its branches in the winter, but grew them back again in the spring. It seems to be somewhat delicate - gets wilted and sunburned if I leave it out too long, and definitely cold-sensitive. http://www.kyburg.com/ptf/Default.htm

Posted by Ananth (rishii@telocity.com) on Wed, Jun 13, 01 at 12:23 I have grown the Curry leaves plant in my home in LA. They are available in the San Gabriel Nursery fo $7.00. As we south Indians needs a lot, almost day in day out, decided to plant one. so far it has grown well. During winter, as my dad informed me I kept it under a plastic sheet hood (can get it from home depot), so that the cold do not affect the plant.

Miracle Grow needs to be applied during summer and fall every two weeks. Also apply Steer Manure once a while. During summer clip all the flowers so that new branches grow. Can use the flowers for cooking as it also has the same smell. If you wait longer it becomes seeds.
