Growing Information

Lemon Grass

DAYS TO GERMINATION: 7-14 days.

SOWING: Transplant (recommended): Sow seed on soil surface and press into soil or cover lightly, as light aids germination. Moisten lightly and cover with a dome lid or other cover to conserve moisture. If available, use bottom heat to enhance germination. Keep soil temperature at around 68°F (20°C) until germination, or 68°F (20°C) at night and 86°F (30°C) during the day. Do not over-water. Transplant clumps into larger cells and grow in a warm place until after the last chance of frost has passed. When the minimum soil temperature is 45°F (7°C), transplant 3-4" tall seedlings in clumps or as individual plants outdoors. Space 8-12" apart in rows that are 18" apart. Keep moist and well weeded. Lemon grass doesn't tolerate frost. Rarely flowers as an annual. Can be dug an divided in the fall to pot up for overwintering indoors or start new plants each spring.
