Lemongrass Seeds


I have given up the fight with my lemongrass - it is determined to flower and is doing so, despite my attempts to prune off the flourishing bits. I just hope that I don't have 6 billion of the little things coming up because there is 12 seed heads - some much bigger than this one- out there!

Mind you the heads are just amazing to look at. A couple have spider webs inter-twined with the seeds - if I have a misty morning I will grab a photo.

put a brown paper bag over the seed heads when they start turning and collect the seed rather than it spreading - you may be able to give gale more than 1 plant then
