To get started, you need to buy cinnamon seeds. It’s best to buy it from a specialty herb or garden store, as cinnamon seeds are not sold in all drugstores and supermarkets.

Once you have the seeds, you must plant it in a pot with enough soil. The pot should be large enough to allow the tree to grow for years to come. If you don’t have a suitable pot, you can build one using a plastic jerrycan.

The soil you use to plant the cinnamon tree should be rich in nutrients and moisture. If you don’t have specially prepared soil, you can mix it with compost or humus.

Once you have planted the seeds in the pot, cover the soil with a few inches of water. Let the water absorb and then leave it in a sunny place.

Be sure to water your cinnamon tree daily, especially during the summer months. If it doesn’t rain much in your area, you can hose it down.

The cinnamon tree will begin to grow after a few months. When it is between 2 and 3 m high, you can start using it in the kitchen.
