Three Methods for Growing Moringa | Orchard, Hedge, Intensive


Moringa Farms in Plant City, Florida. We grow moringa trees! I'd love to share with you today exactly what's going on at the farm. You can see here that we're growing this plot of moringa trees in like a hedge row. I'm going to go ahead and show you some of the different ways that you can grow Moringa. This is actually from some cuttings and some of our cuttings are actually starting to come back here on this nice mulch mound. We're on two and a half acres; everything here pretty much froze back and it's just now starting to re-sprout. Loving that the greens are starting to come back. I'm gonna do a little bit of a harvest for you guys so you can see a little bit later about how to actually and beautiful. .

This helps them grow to their full height and gives us enough room between trees to harvest easily. It also lets us do things like mow the grass.


The second method we'll look at is the hedge row. These trees are planted 3-7 feet apart. You could use this method as a living fence, as a wind break, or a barrier between your garden and orchard. With them so close it makes harvesting them go a lot faster. But these shouldn't get as big as your orchard style trees.

We have a nice little mama Moringa at the end here telling all her little babies how to grow. Look how close together they are. This is a good way to get a lot of biomass quickly. Great for micro green production. A lot of these will die off, and that's okay. Save only the ones that look really good at the seasons end and transfer them to pots to sell or put them in your orchard.
