Every seed came up, they're about 3' tall with a sturdy stem. Waiting until mid March to put out in the southern (Ga) garden. Will be licking my lips watching them flower and fruit. I like these as an addition to a traditional red tomato salad.
I had 40 mph winds my greenhouse fell over and was so surprised the seeds survived two days in the cold under soil and are still growing. The roots were in tact so i transplanted them, they are doing just fine. 10 stars

This tropical grassy, bright green, perennial plant is a key ingredient in Asian cuisine. Germination 7-10 days Start seeds indoors, on a heating mat or atop of the fridge, cover with plastic wrap, keep seeds moist at 68 degrees with plenty of light. Once the seedling appears, remove the plastic, keeping the seeds moist but not soaked. When soil temperatures maintain 70 degrees, transplant seedlings into patio pots, or in the ground. These grass-like, bushy plants do very well in the warmer weather. Ready for use in 90-100 days Lemongrass has fresh, lemony scent, which is why is it widely used in fragrances and soaps. For culinary uses, try it in soups, marinades, salad dressings and of course stir-frys! Plus it freezes well!
