Introduce a touch of citrusy freshness and ornamental beauty to your garden with our Lemon Grass Ornamental Grass Seeds. Lemon Grass (Cymbopogon flexuosus) is a fragrant and versatile grass known for its lemony scent, graceful foliage, and culinary uses. With our premium seeds, you can grow your own Lemon Grass plants for both decorative purposes and culinary delights. Here's why our Lemon Grass Ornamental Grass Seeds are a must-have for gardeners and herb enthusiasts:

Key Features:

  • Citrusy Fragrance: Lemon Grass emits a refreshing lemon scent when its leaves are crushed or brushed, making it a delightful addition to gardens, patios, and outdoor spaces.
  • Ornamental Appeal: The tall, arching blades of Lemon Grass add vertical interest and texture to landscapes, borders, and herb gardens, enhancing visual appeal.
  • Culinary Uses: Lemon Grass is a popular herb in Asian cuisine, used to impart a lemony flavor and aroma to soups, curries, marinades, and teas.
  • Medicinal Benefits: Lemon Grass is valued for its potential health benefits, including digestive support, stress relief, and insect repellent properties.
  • Easy to Grow: Lemon Grass is low-maintenance, drought tolerant, and adaptable to various soil types and growing conditions, making it suitable for beginner and experienced gardeners alike.

Planting Instructions:

  1. Timing: Start Lemon Grass seeds indoors 8-10 weeks before the last frost date or direct sow outdoors after the danger of frost has passed.

  2. Soil Preparation: Choose well-draining, fertile soil with a pH of 6.0-7.5. Incorporate organic matter such as compost or aged manure to enhance soil fertility.

  3. Sowing Indoors: Sow Lemon Grass seeds 1/4 inch deep in seed trays filled with potting mix. Keep the soil moist and warm (70-85°F) for optimal germination.

  4. Transplanting: Once seedlings have developed several sets of true leaves and are sturdy enough, transplant them into larger containers or directly into the garden, spacing them 12-18 inches apart.

  5. Watering: Water Lemon Grass regularly to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Reduce watering frequency once plants are established.

Growing Conditions:

  1. Sunlight: Lemon Grass thrives in full sun to partial shade. Provide at least 6-8 hours of direct sunlight daily for vigorous growth and aromatic foliage.

  2. Temperature: Lemon Grass prefers warm climates and does well in USDA Hardiness Zones 9-11. In cooler regions, grow Lemon Grass in containers and bring indoors during winter.

  3. Soil: Well-draining soil is crucial for Lemon Grass. Amend heavy soils with sand or perlite to improve drainage.

Care Tips:

  • Pruning: Trim Lemon Grass leaves regularly to harvest fresh leaves for culinary use and to promote bushier growth.
  • Fertilizing: Apply a balanced fertilizer or organic compost in spring to provide nutrients for healthy growth.
  • Pest Control: Lemon Grass is relatively pest resistant. Monitor for aphids or mealybugs and treat with insecticidal soap if necessary.

Harvesting and Usage:

  • Harvesting: Cut Lemon Grass leaves near the base using sharp scissors or shears. Harvest outer leaves first and allow inner leaves to continue growing.
  • Culinary Use: Use fresh or dried Lemon Grass leaves in soups, curries, stir-fries, teas, and infused oils for a zesty lemon flavor.
