Lemon Grass is a plant in the poaceae family. It is very often grown in the Mediterranean countries and can be grown to prepare special oils that are used in medicines or to produce perfumes. In Asia, Lemon Grass serves as an ingredient in soups and beverages. The most common instance of using the plant in Asian countries is perhaps tom yum soup, with its spicy to a little sour flavour. This grass variety is also an excellent addition to tea, and an ideal plant for infusions.
Growing: sow the seeds in covered pots or pallet planters from February to March. Since the seeds are slight, press them into the soil using a small board, but do not cover them with soil. The seeds germinate in 3 to 4 weeks at 20-25°C. As the seedlings grow bigger, transplant them to bigger pots. The pots, or other containers the plants will be grown in, can be moved outside in the summer. Before the winter, place the plants in a light greenhouse or under cover at a temperature above 0oC. The plants require medium fertile soils in warm sunny positions that are protected from the wind.
