Tender Perennial, grown as an annual in all but zone 10. Or, pot it up and keep it indoors over the winter. Lemongrass is well known in Thai cooking, but did you know that the leaves make a wonderful tea, too? Easy to grow. Plant out after last frost in average soil. Keep fertilized and watered. You can start harvesting as soon as the plant has several "bulbs". Pull off a bulb at a time. Mince the tender, inner part of the bulb and lower leaves for cooking. Use the tougher stems for flavoring food like a pot of soup, but don't eat it. Use the grassy stems for tea. Can be frozen or dried for winter use. Plants form an attractive, grassy clump that grows 3-6' high, depending on how far south you live.
Our plants are sustainably raised in our own potting mix. We use only organic fertilizers and sprays if needed. We have been growing and selling plants since 1997.
Our herb plants are shipped in individual 3" deep pots. They are well established and are ready to be planted out in your garden.
We are currently accepting orders for the 2015 season. All of our plants are now available to order. Please note that Local Harvest has asked us to raise our plant prices and lower our shipping prices. So, although it looks like our prices have gone up, they actually have not. Once shipping is figured, you should pay about the same as last year. \\r\\nWithin 24 hours of receiving your order, we will e-mail you with a shipping date that we choose based on your last frost date. You are welcome to change the date to any other shipping week. Just respond to the e-mail and tell us when you want your plants.
