How To Transplant Lemongrass
A fast-growing perennial, lemongrass is a tall tropical or subtropical grass that is quick to outgrow pots and beds.
Transplanting lemongrass into a bigger container or bed is best done during spring and summer.
Water the area well for two days before to keep the roots from drying out and to help the plant recover from being transplanted, then cut the stalks to 150mm above soil level.
TIP The aromatic oil that gives lemongrass its citrus flavour is contained in the roots and stems.
