Easy to grow herb that is indispensable in Thai cooking, and also makes a flavorful tea…
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.
Within 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. Our first shipping date is late March, weather permitting. We will not have plants available before then.
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 plants are shipped in individual 3″ deep pots, and are ready to be planted out in your garden.
We package our plants with extreme care so they arrive undamaged at your doorstep. Each plant is tucked into its own padded sleeve. The soil in each pot is covered so it will not spill out. A plant tag identifying the variety is included with each plant.
We ship every Monday and Tuesday, from late March through May, according to your location or your request. We currently ship to every state except Hawaii and Alaska.
