Lemongrass Herb Seeds

Lemongrass Herb Seeds are a fantastic addition to any herb garden, offering a refreshing citrus aroma and a variety of culinary and medicinal uses. To grow lemongrass from seeds, start by sowing them indoors in early spring, as they require warmth to germinate. Use well-draining soil and keep the seeds consistently moist until they sprout, which usually takes about two weeks. Once the seedlings have developed a few sets of true leaves, they can be transplanted outdoors into a sunny location with fertile, loamy soil. Lemongrass benefits include its aromatic flavor in cooking, as well as its potential health benefits such as digestion aid, stress relief, and insect repellent properties. For growers, regular pruning helps promote new growth, and dividing mature plants every few years keeps them vigorous.
