Plant: Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) |

The pond corner isn’t the only place that we wanna plant this plant. Jas wants to get a whole bunch of it to see if it minimizes our mosquito problem. So far, we have 2 tiny plants of this that we got at Gazebo Gardens. We rode our bikes, so Jas had to put a shoebox on the rack on the back of his bike just in case we found something we wanted to buy. O.o

FunkyJan's Lemongrass Care Instructions

Look to ensure a distance 1.62 feet (50.0 cm) between Lemongrass seeds when sowing to make sure your seedlings have enough space.

Lemongrass normally grows to a mature height of 1.00 metres (that's 3.25 feet imperial) so ensure you have enough space in your garden for this plant.

Your garden is in partial sun light: plant in a location that enjoys full sun.

Remember to water often.

Your garden's USDA Hardiness Zone (8) is not within the ideal known range for Lemongrass. The recommended range is between Zone 9 and 14. You may have to reassess this planting for suitability in your garden.

Lemongrass tends to grow best in a soil ph of between 5.1 and 8.5 meaning it does best in acidic to alkaline soil.

More information about Lemongrass is available in the Folia gardener's wiki. All Lemongrass Care Instructions have been kindly provided by our members.
