On Todays 5minute Friday, we are going to plant some Lemon Grass.
These are lemon grass grown from cuttings, grown from seeds they take a really long time. So, we have some fabulous plugs here. There are 2 important facts about lemon grass, firstly it likes to stay above 5 degrees, making it an indoor plant for now, but can go on the patio in the summer. Secondly, it likes to stay moist and actively grows above 15 degrees.
If you have ever wanted to grow your own Lemon grass, this is the perfect product for you. It has numerous uses in cooking, great with slow cooked casseroles, stocks, soups, stews, also perfect for curry flavours, a healthy tea or even a crème brulee. One of my favourites, is a baked sea bass with lemon grass and ginger, delicious.

- Fill container with nice well-draining compost.
- Make a hole and pop in the lemon grass, then just tuck it in gently. In a pot this size, 2 plugs are perfect.
- Water well as in the video, this technique helps give the plants an even water. We want the pot to feel heavier once watered.
