To overwinter, lift the plants in early autumn and pot up, growing throughout the winter in a greenhouse at a minimum temperature of 7C. Compost should be kept just moist throughout winter. Lemongrass can also be permanently grown in a container (30cm) in a conservatory or heated greenhouse. Harvest July-October. Height 100150cm (39-59"); spread 50-60cm (20-24").

Lemon grass is widely used as a culinary herb in Asian cuisines, and more and more in the UK. In India, it's used as a medicinal herb. It brings a subtle citrus flavour, that feels clean and palate-cleansing. It can be dried and powdered, or used fresh depending on your preference.

There are so many really delicious and creative recipes for making homemade teas, soups and curries, it's just about being able to choose what to cook. It's also worth trying lemon grass poultry, fish, beef and seafood dishes too.

Growing Information

Sow in trays of good quality compost in February/March and cover with a thin layer of compost or vermiculite. Light is needed to aid germination (germination up to 28 days). Place in a propagator or sunny windowsill at 18-21º. When large enough to handle, pot on into individual pots and keep inside, or acclimatise to outside temperatures after the chance of frost has passed at 25cm spacings.
