In Sri Lanka Gotu Kola is known as the longevity herb. It has many properties that are beneficial to your health and wellbeing. It helps my hair grow long is good for the skin and gut. I make a side salad called gotukola sambol, mixing it with freshly grated coconut, onions and green chilli pepper.
I have grown it from seed and I was really happy to find it has survived the winter outside. At the moment I have a lot of Curry Leaf seedlings, I use a lot of curry leaves in my cookery and my spice mix. I would love to be able to pick the leaves fresh and put straight into my cooking, that way they have more flavour and are more beneficial.
