Planting Instructions

  1. Timing: Start seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost date or sow directly outdoors after the danger of frost has passed.
  2. Soil Preparation: Choose well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Citronella prefers slightly acidic to neutral soil pH.
  3. Sowing Depth: Sow seeds about 1/4 inch deep in seed-starting mix. Keep the soil consistently moist and maintain a warm environment (70-75°F or 21-24°C) for germination.
  4. Sunlight: Provide full sun to partial shade. Citronella plants thrive in bright, sunny locations but can tolerate some shade.
  5. Spacing: Space plants about 18-24 inches apart to allow for proper air circulation and growth.

Growing and Care

  • Watering: Water regularly, especially during dry periods, keeping the soil evenly moist but not waterlogged. Once established, the plants are moderately drought-tolerant.
  • Fertilization: Feed with a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season to support healthy growth.
  • Pruning: Trim the plant regularly to maintain its shape and encourage bushier growth. Harvest leaves as needed for their aromatic and culinary uses.
  • Pest and Disease Management: Citronella is relatively pest-resistant. Ensure proper spacing and air circulation to prevent fungal diseases.


  • Timing: Harvest leaves throughout the growing season, starting when the plant is well-established and has ample foliage.
  • Method: Use scissors or pruning shears to cut leaves, taking care not to remove more than one-third of the plant at a time.
