    Hi there! I know I'm late to this but I had been told the curry leaf trees were too big to be in an apartment and now I see that's not necessarily true! I have a nice sunroom they would be happy in and if (only if) you have any extra seeds left over, Balendra, might I get one from you? (I'll investigate the other options too).

    Thank you all for letting me know that this is possible here!!

    Hello Balendra,

    I just luckily came across this forum and your posts today. I have been looking to get a curry leaf plant for quite some time.
    I wonder if you would be willing to either ship me some seeds or a plant when they are ready ?
    I am willing to pay the (shipping) charges involved.

    Thanks a lot !

    @Jay John
    You can try propagating some stem sections if you are unable to acquire either seed or plant as the person in the following post did: Curry Plant/Murraya Koenigii. I've seen packages of curry leaf leaves sold at Real Canadian Superstore that have a piece of stem still attached. I believe they have a number of locations in Calgary.

    @Junglekeeper

    Thank you for your suggestion. I will try it out though I have heard that propagating stems are rather difficult. Meanwhile I will be waiting to hear from @Balendra.

    Hello, I am new to this forum. I am interested in getting a curry leaf plant or seeds. Please let me know if you can help or direct me to someone who can help. I live near UBC & can come pick it up. I am hoping to gift it to my wife :-). Thank you.

    There were some half dozen small plants and one larger one available in mid-August at the place mentioned in post #4 (Looking for Curry Leaf Plant) of this thread.

    It occurred to me that they may have closed early for the season from a lack of business because of COVID. As I recall, they normally operate to the end of September or October.

    Edit: Updated comment on seasonal closing.

    Mail order is available from Flora Exotica: Flora Exotica - Exotic Vegetables and Herbs. They also offered seed at one time. However they have a minimum order for shipped orders of $50 for plants and $10 for seeds.

    Apparently this plant has been available in the past at Figaro's Garden and various GardenWorks locations around Vancouver.

    @Hunar1216, check with the GardenWorks in your area.

    @Swarup Jacob, did you manage to buy one from that farm? There are still several plants left though they're not in the best of condition. The place will close at the end of October.

    Yes, I purchased a tiny one over the weekend for $16. They had one more left (slightly bigger for $65).

    @Junglekeeper I called up Garden works and they told me that they did have the curry leaves a few months ago but now they don’t. They said it will be available only next summer. Will wait till summer then. Thanks for letting me know about this place in Victoria.

    You're welcome. At least now everyone knows of several locations where this plant can be purchased.

    To add to the list, I was also told Minter out in Chiliwack also carried it.

    Hello everyone, sorry for disappearing in the summer. Life got in the way. It took way longer to get seeds than I originally anticipated. I also got a bad case of scale bugs that took 4ever to get rid of. I had close to 50 fruits at the start and have ended up with about 14 seeds. I can send one per person for maximum of maybe 6 people total. Those of you who have been waiting on me, please contact me.
