How to Grow Cumin (Cuminum)

It is perhaps best to start Cuminum seedlings off indoors. They should be grown in peat pots. Sow the Cumin seeds at a depth of about 6 mm. It should take about two weeks for the cumin seeds to germinate when kept at about 20 degrees Centigrade. The Cumin can then be transplanted outdoors in the middle of spring, well after the possibility of any frost at a spacing of about 10 cm. They prefer to grow in an area that is sunny and will thrive in a fertile soil.

Caring for Cuminum

The Cumin plant makes an ideal addition to any herb garden. Cumin should be watered during dry spells and hot weather to increase its yield.
