I'm currently growing one of these - https://citruscentre.co.uk/products/indian-curry-leaf-plant. It's little more than a twig with leaves just now, so too small to harvest this year, but it should be good to go in 2020.Hi Naga, you will, i got my plant from there the same size as yours in 2015, at the end of its first growing season it got knocked into the pond by nephews playing football and had the top broken off, trust me i was not happy,Because i kept it near the pond it got scale insect, so i cleaned them off with cotton buds and meths and moved it to the other end of the garden.At the first sign / hint of frost it goes into the cabin overnight which is unheated apart from 2 freezers and a fridge, any nice days it comes out, tis a labour of love.Cutting the first limb for harvest was an emotional struggle lol but now no problem, i use clean cutters.I cut the plant back in spring and harvested all the leaves in vacuum bags i have about 6 packs,The plant is a tad under 1 metre tall and is sprouting everywhere, last year i had my first set of berries which got knocked off by heavy rain.Every time you water it, feed it citrus fertilizer, once a month add a tsp of epsom salts, allow the soil to dry before each watering, they don't like wet feet so make sure the soil drains well (perlite). there is a pic of mine on the curry leaf thread. if i can be of any help let me know, enjoy growing your plant, its fun
from what i understand there are no countries at the moment that can satisfy Eu regulations which means only frozen leaves can be imported, i wonder what the restaurants do for supplies.
