Q.How To Treat My 2 Pots Of Lemon Grass For The Winter

Zone 7b | Barbara Brewton added on November 3, 2021 | Answered

I have lovely stands at the moment. I live just barely north of Memphis. Zone 7b, looks like. Since these plants weren’t cheap and it does get into the single digits in winter here, and I have porches that provide some shelter and a garage, but not a huge mount of indoor space, what do I do with these plants for the winter?

I would grow them indoors. They won't tolerate our Tennessee winters at all. In fact, It would surprise me if they are still in good shape at this time! It is colder than they like it, right now.

This plant is so easy to grow, indoors, though, that it will be happy in a small container until you can divide it out into larger pots each year. Keeping a small section of grass to put indoors each winter will ensure that you have something to plant each summer. This can be done for all grasses, and is what I must do for my sugar cane each year.
