My lemongrass has taken over the garden. Should I remove half the plant, or prune it back to the ground? Thanks.

You can cut the plant back and this should help keep it under control. If the plant is taking up too much room in the garden, simply remove some of the plant. It does root very easily so take care in where you toss it (in case you don't want to replant what you dig up). You may even want to give some of the plant away to others. Do you use it in the kitchen? Harvesting the plant regularly will also help. Here is more info: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/herbs/lemongrass/harvesting-lemongrass.htm
