The Q&A Archives: Growing Curry Plant

Question: I would like to know something about a "curry plant". Can<br>it winter over in zone 4 - 5? What are its cultural requirements?

Answer: Curry Plant (Helichrysum italicum) is a tender perennial that must be overwintered indoors in zone 5 and north. It's usually grown as an annual or houseplant in cold zones. It requires full sun and fertile, moisture-retentive soil. Sounds pretty easyto me! Plants are available from Richter's Herbs (; ph# # 905/640-6677). Their website provides expert advice on herbs through their Q&A page, too. Enjoy!
