Patchouli can be a really fun a lovely plant to grow. This article tells you more: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/patchouli/growing-patchouli-herb-plant.htm
As to where to find one, the best info I can give is to google, or otherwise enter into your computer browser, some such question as "where to buy patchouli plants." If there's any place in your area that has them, it should show up. At least, you'll get some on line sources that will send you some plants.

Q. Patchouli perfume

Where does the perfume come from? Do the leaves or the flowers of Patchouli plants hold the perfume?

The leaves are harvested for the fragrance and specifically the top 3 to 4 sets of leaves hold the most fragrance.
The leaves are distilled to extract the oil.

Q. Patchouli plant

I’ve got patchouli plant from Amazon.co.uk seller. It came in very good condition. From this time, it is growing – 2 more new leaves on each branch on top and seems to be more growing. But all the plant looks poor, not 100% healthy. Its leaves are curling in the the lower part of the plant, they hang limply. A few leaves fell off (little parts of them ware dry). What’s going on with my little patchouli plant?

Thank You

Mak

Make sure that it was not planted in to large of a container, and that the soil is well draining.
Avoid overwatering and allow the first inch or so of soil to dry before watering again.

You should have your plant in a full to partial sun location.

Here is a link to refresh you on the care requirements.

Q. Info on Patchouli Plant care Please?!

I have had two Patchouli plants (at different times), and they both died. 🙁 I tried different things with them; more light/less light, good soil/not-so-great soil; well watered/let it dry out. Nothing worked. What do Patchouli plants like?
(I didn’t include a picture because I’m sure everybody knows what a dead plant looks like 🙁 So sad….)

Q. Patchouli

Hi, I love patchouli and have been searching for a plant or seeds to buy. I am in the lower mainland of BC and have had no luck. I am wondering how you got yours. I found on Amazon, but it’s from another country and they said they couldn’t guarantee it wouldn’t be seized at the border.
Thanks, Rhonda

It sounds like your laws regarding this subject differ from ours here. You have to be careful and follow all laws when trying to obtain plants. I have, personally, bought many plants and trees from overseas, but this depends on the plant, and if it is allowed in your area. I would recommend going online, as we do not sell plants. But as I said, if the plant is blacklisted in your area, then it may be illegal to obtain one.
