I bought my Gotukola plants in the garden centre in Onewa Rd, Northcote. I have it in a pot otherwise I think it would spread everywhere. It has taken quite a while to grow to a reasonable size so I don't have any to spare sorry.

Jane do you make tea with it or just eat it with salad?

I've planted a small piece of Brahmi in a little jiffy pot and keep that sitting in water, it is about an inch high at moment.

I grow Gotukola. It is a miracle herb. Used for everything, for utmost health and vitality have up to 4 leaves on a daily basis. It is blood cleansing, organ cleansing. It contains many vitamins and minerals. A great antoxident and antiviral. one of the oldest herbs around. Enjoy.

Hi I'm new to this site and would like to know if anyone has had any experience of two herbs that I'm interested in at the moment. One is Brahmi which my daughter in law is growing to make tea for me grandson who has Aspurgess. The other I have is GotuKola which I haven't as yet tried but is for arthritis. Can anyone enlighten me on either of these herbs.

roger that, will have to be my next chore then :)

Yes, Nicolas, the mint will take over in there! It would be best on it's own in either another barrel, a decent size pot or a bucket. Then the other herbs in the barrel stand a chance.

made a herbs barrel-pot, I think I will need to transplant the mint
