Fenugreek herb seeds can be sown directly out in the garden, when the weather is warm and all danger of frost has passed. Clear your sowing area of all unwanted plant life and weeds. Turn the soil, or replace it with a new, fresh sowing medium. Scatter the seeds to the surface of the soil, covering thinly with 1/4" of topsoil.
Fenugreek will thrive in an area of full sunlight for the majority of the day. The plants will require temperatures of at least 70F and a sowing medium that is both rich and fertile, but dry and warm. The soil should also be well drained. To increase drainage, we recommend adding a light compost to areas containing hard, compact soil. Water daily with a mist setting or spray bottle.
Fenugreek seeds will typically take anywhere between 7 and 14 days to germinate. The plants can grow to a mature height of roughly 16 to 18 inches tall, while young sprouts can be harvested at a few inches tall. The plants can be spaced about 8 inches apart, in rows spaced 18 inches apart from one another. All parts of the Fenugreek herb are considered edible, even the seeds, which can be ground up and added to soups, curries and other culinary dishes.
