Question: lemongrass

Dear Garden.it staff

I would be interested in buying a lemongrass plant, how can I find it?

Julian


Lemongrass: Answer: lemongrass

Dear Giuliano,

I thank you for this request because it allows us to give information to other users as well; the success of lemongrass is known to all, being a plant with a strong aroma of lemon and mint, used in Italy exclusively as a mosquito repellent plant.

In fact it is a real aromatic plant, which is also used in the kitchen, to flavor raw and cooked dishes.

It is not difficult to find in specialized nurseries, or even in the various gardening fairs held in Italy; if the nursery where you go does not have one, try asking to get it, it shouldn't be difficult.

It will help you to know that it is called Cymbopogon nardus, and that it has the appearance of a thick tuft of grass, with slightly arched ribbon leaves. It is certainly easier to find it in the nursery in spring.

Hope you can find it

Sincerely

The Gardening.it Staff
