When to Plant

Germinating lemon grass is easy but does require slightly warmer soil temps. than many of the other herbs you may be familiar with.  Starting your seeds indoors is recommended. 


How to Plant

Choose a location that has full sun and rich, moist, and loamy soil. You can plant lemon grass in sandy soil, but this will require more consistent watering.  Use plenty of mulch.

 

When to Harvest

The long, grassy leaves should be collected by snipping them off with scissors anywhere from mid summer on.
