Q. Lemongrass

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.
Here are some articles that will help you.

Q. Potted lemongrass

I’m told lemongrass is a good mosquito repellent. How do I keep it in a pot? Can it stay outside over the winter or should I bring it in?

Q. Perennials

I planted lemongrass last year. Should it come back this year, or do I need to replant?

A.

Lemongrass is a perennial, but it is only hardy in zones 9 and 10. If you live outside these zones, you'll need to replant each year unless you can move the plant indoors.

Q. Lemon grass

How many plants can I put into a large container. Just bought two plants that are not very big can I put both in one large container.

Lemon Grass grows quite quickly so choose a large enough container.

It sounds like you would be able to place your 2 smaller plants together.
