Where is lemongrass most commonly found in South Africa?

This tufted perennial grass has been found to grow very well on the east coast of South Africa, where Ayanda African Oil growers are producing bulk Lemon Grass Oil for the flavor and fragrance industry.

What month is best to plant lemongrass?

Plant lemongrass in spring, once all chances of frost have passed. It’s a perfect plant for growing in-ground, as you would with ornamental grasses, or in containers.

Lemongrass likes it hot, so grow it in an area with full sun and fertile, well-drained soil with a pH of 6.5 to 7.0.

How do you grow lemongrass in South Africa?

Lemongrass is a perennial, clump-forming grass and should be cut back in spring to encourage new shoots. It grows about 1,5m high and 80cm wide. Plant it in full sun, in well-composted soil in a protected area of the garden.
