Lemongrass

Zone Palm Bay, Florida | maremax6 added on March 20, 2016 | Answered

We have a Lemongrass plant in our backyard and it is doing quite well. My question is - it has these stalks shooting up that almost look like "wheat." Should I leave them or trim them off when they come in? Thank you, Maryanne

If the Lemongrass went dormant over winter and has turned brown, you can wait until it is actively growing and then cut out these parts of the plant.
