Curry Tree In The Home Yarden (Murraya koenigii)
While these trees could make for an interesting bonsai, our initial set up will be a tree, grown full size for it's feathery look and as an herb source. A little bonsai may be good if it needs trimming regularly, but the shade value is of higher importance right now. Maybe a future cutting would work for bonsai.
Curry leaves are not the same as curry powder. Curry powder is a blend of spices combined for convenience.

November 30, 2017- Kadi Patta ArrivedThe little curry leaf trees arrived today - looks like a two-fer deal here. It is tiny and a bit mopey.
We pulled off the packing tape, and added a bit of water. Maybe after a few days and a re-pot we will have a bit more joy going on here.
