How to grow herbs


1 packet (40 lemon grass seeds) (23774)

Sowing

Sow lemon grass from late January to March on the surface of a good seed compost and cover with a sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 20-25C (70-75F) or seal it inside a polythene bag. Keep the compost moist but not wet. Do not exclude light as this aids germination which is often slow, taking 21-40 days.


When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When lemon grass plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Plant lemon grass outdoors, in a warm, sheltered spot at 30cm (12") apart, on moist, well drained soil, in full sun.

More Info
Keep lemon grass plants well watered throughout summer and provide an occasional liquid feed. Harvest individual stems of lemongrass when required by snapping them off at the base of the plant. To over winter, lift the plants in early autumn, pot up and grow through the winter in a greenhouse with a minimum winter temperature of 7C (45F). Keep the compost just moist throughout winter. Alternatively grow lemon grass plants permanently in 25-30cm (10-12") containers in a warm greenhouse or conservatory.
