Thread: Supermarket lemongrass
- 06-01-2008, 09:30 PM #1
I've just bought a pack of 2 stem lemongrass from Sainsbury (reduced to 20p from 69p ). From what I last learnt from a lemongrass thread, you just need to put the stems in a jar of water, changing water now and then. But the root bits at the bottom have been neatly chopped off so I'm thinking these are no good.
What do you think, will they still root and is it the wrong time to be doing this? Thanks.Food for Free

veg you should keep the stems in water in a warmer place than the kitchen windowsill. They will eventually start to root, and can be planted up.
Despite the stems having been 'chopped off' they should still root in the jar of water.

Apparently you can do this and it works really well - unfortunatley I didn't realise this until after I'd sownn some seeds last year which were very small and fiddly until they got going. If I was growing some again I'd defo go with this method. Am growing mine on in a pot which is currently in the conservatory to keep it frost free over winter.
Some of us live in the past, always talking about back then. Some of us live in the future, always planning what we are going to do. And, then there are those, who neither look behind or ahead, but just enjoy the moment of right now.
Which one are you and is it how you want to be?

Poorly, only one teeny-weeny bits of what I hope is a root forming from one stalk out of two. The tips are starting to dry off, going brown. When was yours put in water, mine in first week of January. Where do you put your lemongrass?
