Lemongrass - Cymbopogon flexuosus

Absolutely essential to Asian cooking, Lemongrass is easy to grow but plants are hard to find. A perennial bunching grass from Southeast Asia, it will live happily in your garden in warm zones 9-11, does fine in a container indoors where winters get cold. Plants need full sun, even moisture, and good drainage. Harvest what you need and more will grow back quickly.

Start seeds indoors in early spring and transplant them outside once the weather is warm. Sow them in good compost and barely cover with a thin layer of soil. Maintain a temperature of 70-75 degrees and keep the soil moist but not soggy. Seeds should germinate in 21-40 days.

These seeds are very fresh and have actually been cleaned. They're too small to count, but you only need only one plant for a lifetime supply. More plants can be started from divisions.

Once you have an established patch, it will take care of itself. To harvest the greens, cut them off at ground level and more will appear. You'll always have this fragrant, refreshing herb out your back door.

20 fresh seeds.
