Lemongrass

"This West Indian clump-forming grass is used extensively in cooking to add flavour and fragrance to soups and curries. It can also be used to make a refreshing tea. Protect from frost in cold climates."

How to grow

Naturally preferring areas with dry winters and wet summers, lemongrass can grow in most areas of Australia with a little extra care. In cold climates, protect from frost or dig up a few stalks in late autumn to overwinter in pots. Improve soil with compost and well-rotted manure prior to planting. Leaves have sharp edges, so always wear gloves when handling. Divide in spring if needed. Drought tolerant once established.
