Lemon Grass (Cymbopogon citratus) | 9cm Garden Ready Plant
Zoom  Zoom

Lemon grass is native to South Asia and maritime Southeast Asia and is an aromatic tropical plant with cane-like stems. In the UK it is grown outside in the summer months in a pot or container and is best in a free-draining soil or compost.  Lemon Grass can reach a height of 100cm and a spread of 50cm and would make a great centrepiece for a summer display of herbs in a large pot.

This herb is used widely in Thai cuisine as one of the main ingredients. The central swollen core and leaf base are where all the flavour is.

Nice size and very healthy.
Suggest packaging could be done to prevent soil loss from the top of the pot?

Disappointed about the size of the plant. I know it was due to things out of your control, if I had know I would have cancelled this. The rest of the plants were good. Thanks. Jan.

Very poor condition
Wednesday, 19 May 2021  | 

Consisted of 3 x 3 inch strands of Grass, container lying on its side, compost loosely filled with some spilled out. To be honest, it looked more like the Plant was pretty much missing. Since receiving, I have had it sitting on my Kitchen windowsill, with little sign of improvement


Response:

Thank you for your review. We are sorry to hear the plant arrived like this and have now emailed you to see if we can help further.
