I don't think fenugreek is quite as fool proof to grow as some other herbs. I have so far avoided it just for the ease factor and the factor that i really prefer to create some raised beds to have a bit more 'soil control' and with easy kitchen access to grow herbs in and haven't got around to it. but I plan to put together my raised beds this year and I am thinking of putting fenugreek on the short list.
what have you found fenugreek to like as far as growing conditions? what other herbs would compliment it?
what all can it be used for? this is what I know already...
flavor enhancer/appetite stimulant for animal feed
maple flavor could be used to make immitation syrup where none is available
traditional supplement for nursing mothers to increase milk supply
I just planted some very recently, it seems to be doing best on a rotting stump, in full sun.
ere's what I've read it's useful for:
Seeds: cleanser (saponins are probably also responsible for some medicinal properties) aphordesiac thickener/humectant hot beverage hilbeh dip (Yemeni dish): most of the saponins removed in processing
Leaves: herb, especially for Indian flatbread hay dried & ground, insect repellent in stored grain

They are manifestations of the laws of nature, free to all men and reserved exclusively to none." SCOTUS, Funk Bros. Seed Co. v. Kale Inoculant Co.
All of the following truths are shameless lies. But what about this tiny ad:
