Nice addition to the garden
Easy to Grow 4.5
EarlyMaturity 4.5
 

What are the pros? Easy to grow

What are the cons? Haven't come across any yet...

Review:

Impressed that Baker Creek seeds carried lemongrass seeds. We're surprisingly easy to germinate and are growing well here in Northern Vermont. Plants are quite large and vigorous (mid August), smell delicious, and have no pests. Have been harvesting leaves to dry periodically.

Review:

I have never seen lemongrass let alone grow any. I instantly fell in love with this wonderful plant. Beautiful tall leaves that flutter in the breeze adds an elegance and grace to my deck. I will definitely be growing this plant for years to come.

Review:

Though not from Baker Creek, I have grown lemongrass in Zone 8b for years. A Thai co-worker gave me a few little stalks and I planted them near the house. From those 2 small slips, I have divided and re-planted all around the house and garden. It makes a fantastic accent as a tall and willowy grass. One variety is "Eastern" lemongrass and is not as tall or thick-stalked, and one is "Western" lemongrass that is more widely used for Asian culinary purposes. The most showy clumps near the porch I dig up and place in a 3-gallon bucket in a south-facing (but shady) window over the winter with just enough water to cover the bare roots. They yellow just a bit until planting again in March, but then they're off and growing again. Other clumps I cut to just above the ground and let them be, and they over winter easily in the Deep South.

Review:

This grew very well last summer (2010) in our Zone 4a area. I brought some in before our first frost and it has continued to grow on our kitchen windowsill. I'm ordering more seed for this year!
