How to grow cinnamon at home and always have this fragrant spice available

January 04, 2020 • By Shirley Marie Bradby

Cinnamon is an aromatic spice with powerful therapeutic properties, as well as with a strong and unmistakable flavor.

Although this spice is often used in the kitchen in the preparation of desserts, it is rarely cultivated at home when compared to the custom of growing other plants such as basil or thyme.

In reality, the cinnamon tree can survive both inside and outside the home and does not require a lot of care and attention.

Even though the plant can reach quite large dimensions, its growth can be controlled and managed so that the plant remains at a height of roughly 5 feet (1.5 meters) which is ideal for domestic spaces. But how do we grow it at home?

We can start growing cinnamon by planting seeds or through cuttings.

The first option is certainly the most easily implemented and the most important thing is to try to get seeds from strong and healthy trees.

Just plant the seeds in a pot with suitable soil, leaving it in a shaded area and watering it regularly.

A cinnamon tree can be grown safely in a garden or in pots on a terrace or balcony. And, it is essential that the area in which it is located is characterized by fairly mild temperatures.

Cinnamon, in fact, prefers a tropical climate and to develop at its best it should be grown in areas where the temperature is around 68-86°F (20-30C°).

If the temperature is in the lower range, it is perhaps advisable to keep the plant indoors and put it outdoors only later, always paying attention to any prolonged frosts during the coldest months.

The tree will have to be pruned every two years to prevent it from becoming too tall and the first harvest of cinnamon bark can take place after the first two or three years.

In fact, the spice is made from the bark of the youngest branches, which must be removed and then dried. During this process, the bark will take on the typical "rolled stick" aka "quill" appearance of cinnamon bark.

What are you waiting for? If you are passionate about this fragrant spice, you must not miss the opportunity to grow some directly at home!
