Caring for Krishna Tulsi

  • Every leaf has a growth bud, so removing old flower blossoms encourages the plant to make more flowers instead of using the energy to make seeds.
  • Clean away from around the base of the rosebushes any trimmed debris that can harbor disease and insects.

Special features: As a seasoning herb in many vegetable and meat dishes, or as a key ingredient of pesto and other condiments.

Culinary use: It is widely known across the Indian subcontinent as a medicinal plant and a herbal tea.

Ornamental use: The plant is used for an ornamental purpose. The tulsi plant is pleasing to the eye, with an upright, open and branching form. The fragrance of the leaves is also quite attractive-spicy and complex, often resembling clove.

Medicinal use: Tulasi (Sanskrit:-Surasa) has been used for thousands of years in Ayurveda for its diverse healing properties.
