8 ways to use lemongrass




Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus) grows abundantly in my subtropical permaculture garden, a productive polyculture. It is such a useful multi-functional perennial.


When it's time to propagate lemongrass soon, I will make another film showing how to divide a clump and create a living swale using it. 

Before I had terraces in my vegetable garden, I used lemongrass as an edge to hold mulch and compost on the slope. It was a very effective and quick way to start a vegetable garden without a lot of cost and infrastructure.

Watch my latest YouTube clip about the many ways I use lemongrass in my permaculture garden.

  1. I love lemongrass and use it in cooking a lot. The other day I divided a big clump and replanted. I didn't think of using it as much. Thank you for the video with more ideas.
