Lemongrass - A Tropical Herb in a Midwest Garden

This weeks post brings a visitor from the tropics - Lemongrass
There are many uses for Lemongrass from insect spray to teas.  In the following video I will tell all about how to grow it here in Iowa, what it has been used for medicinally, and how to make a tasty lemon tasting herbal tea.
I hope you enjoy the video as much as I did making it.
Leave me a comment and let me know what you thought, or give me some ideas for future topics that you would be interested in learning more about!

By the way, here is the link to the Lemongrass-Cholesterol study

  1. Thanks Abundant Design. The tea made with lemongrass from your garden tested exactly like back home in India. Looking forward to next season's harvest.
