Before Moringa seed pods become available remember, seed pods will only start forming if the bees pollinate them. So if you're growing in a greenhouse or inside an enclosed structure don't forget to leave a door open from time to time. You might also want to add some other plants bees are drawn to; like Rosemary or Lavender to increase chances of pollination.

The uses of Moringa oleifera?

Eating is not jut a pleasure, it's also a necessity. Food gives us energy after it's digested or broken down into small molecules of nutrients. The digestive system is made of several connecting parts: the mouth, esophagus, stomach, and intestines. Two adjunct organs, the liver and the pancreas, produce additional digestive juices that enter the small intestine via tiny ducts. When the digestive system runs smoothly, things are good. But when digestion goes awry, life can be most unpleasant. Digestive complaints are caused by lots of issues: improper storage and handling, poor nutrition, infectious diseases, and stress. The herbalists of antiquity and today have found stomach-soothing plants whose actions are gentle, effective, and documented by scientific research. Medicinal plants have a great deal to offer when it comes to digestive troubles. Not only can many of these cures be treated as foods or flavorings to spice up dishes, but they can also help the body digest them. (Ref: Fueling Up-Nature's Best Remedies-National Geographic)

Slippery Elm Tree (Medicinal)
Slippery elm is truly one of the most versatile plants in the herbal kingdom. An important “tree of plenty”, it is renowned for its beauty, medicine, and food; it seems to help everything it touches. Its herbal actions are demulcent, expectorant, emollient, diuretic, and nutritive in nature. Slippery elm has a long history of use as an herbal medicine; it is still listed as an official drug in the United States Pharmacopoeia and is also sanctioned as an over-the –counter drug. It is one of nature’s best demulcents, its effectiveness proven through eons of use. It contains mucilage cells, starch, tannin and calcium oxalate. These constituents penetrate and cover exposed irritated surfaces, aiding in the healing process. Having an emollient action, it tends to soften and relax inflamed tissues and is specific for inflamed conditions of mucous membranes of the bowels, stomach, throat, and kidney.
Propagation and Cultivation
Given the current status of the elm population in general, along with the incredible usefulness of slippery elm, it is imperative that we begin planting this tree as a part of our sustainable farm and garden practices, much as we plant comfrey and Jerusalem artichokes. Though slippery elm is still susceptible to Dutch elm disease, it remains healthy and usable for the first several years of its life. Thick young stands of trees could be thinned and used as medicine, while older, more disease-susceptible trees could be used for building and firewood. These plantings should not only be considered for aesthetics, and for food and medicine, but also as a source of seed stock to ensure the future survival of this most giving tree.
Slippery elm seeds may be sown as is in their normal cycle in the spring of the year, in an 18-inch raised peat moss soil and sand bed. The beds may need wire top for protection of the young seeds and seedlings. You can expect a 10 to 25 percent germination rate. Transplant the trees into tree tubes within the first month of germination (the soil should be well drained potting soil). They may be field planted after a year or two, depending in the size of your chosen tree tube. Always keep the tree watered during drought, and routinely check for insect predation and signs of fertilization needs.
