The purple-tinged Krishna Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum) really stands out among the neem trees in our greenhouse. Used in religious ceremonies as well as cooking, tulsi may have medicinal qualities similar to neem but it’s a smaller plant that's easy to grow in a sunny window.
A recent clinical study on anxiety confirms the traditional use of tulsi as a calming tea. Other research indicates that tulsi may have cardioprotective effects in mice as well as immune-boosting properties.
It’s that time of year again, and temperatures are dropping across the country. We’ll continue shipping in warm areas, but we will have to stop shipping to places where temperatures are below freezing. We also must limit shipping to states west of the Mississippi River because most of those shipments seem to go through the Chicago airport where they appear to spend the night outside in a truck. We’ll check temperatures here and stop shipping when the low drops below 30 degrees. Orders paid through Google and Amazon will automatically be cancelled because they expect all products to ship within seven days. If you’d like to place the order for shipment when possible, please include a note in the comment section of the order form.
