Lemongrass is a sweet, lemony herb. The stems are widely used in Thai cooking and the leaves also make a delicious, refreshing tea. It also makes an attractive plant, with an architectural look.
You can buy plug plants from a respected herb supplier, or sprout your own using a supermarket stalk. It’s easy to do – just be sure to use fresh stems, avoiding any that are dry or wrinkled.
