Growing Fenugreek

Post by BugsBunny on Tue Aug 13, 2013 1:52 pm

I am currently growing some fenugreek for Dougal and was wondering when I should feed it him? I know it can grow to 2 feet but is the whole lot safe fro him or do I just give him the leaves? atm it is about an inch, maybe 2 " tall , roughly.

From the other thread:

Thumbs Up 

I wouldn't have thought yours would have seeds on yet. Leaves and stems should be fine. As with any new food, only a little at first...

After hearing all about fenugreek crunchies on here and how many little ones love them, Binky just turned his nose up. Terefore I wonder if it is a foregone conclusion that he would not like the fresh herb.

I grow some in the back garden and they didn't grow very high due to the rabbits eating it as fast as it would grow Laughing

I will let it him try it soon then and do not worry I never give too much of a new things or anything, very careful.

I think he will like it as he never turns his nose up at any herb Laughing Laughing

I feed the leaves. After a few weeks it will get flowers and then seed pods will grow. I pull it all up/remove the seed pods when this happens so they cant get the seeds.

If you nip off the flowers when they appear, the plant should keep growing. Most plants are programmed to die back once seeds are produced so by not letting them flower you can lengthen the growing season.
