Lemongrass?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby GBov » Sat Oct 27, 2018 3:29 pm


I have a huge clump of lemongrass and have discovered that, while I have wanted it for years, now I have it? Don't like it at all! :lol:

Can the rabbits eat it?

They have all had a blade or two and like it but I didn't want to give too much before checking.

These sites say it is safe, but I'd go slowly with it and feed it along with other trusted greens. I'm breaking my own rule here about not using the Latin name to identify, but I think you know what you're doing, GBov. ;)

There was a question on Homesteading Today about lemongrass back in 2010 (which I attempted to answer then.) It mentioned drying excess lemongrass for winter and I think that might be a good idea -- though perhaps in Florida that is not needed.

Good idea about drying it, even a light frost kills it back but with the humidity, I have to find somewhere to dry and store it inside. Hmmmmmmm what corner is not full yet?
