Better Home Gardens: Grow your own lemongrass! Growing lemongrass is child’s play. All you need to do is plonk the stalks that you buy at the supermarket into a jar filled with about an inch or so of water and just watch it grow!
Plant lemongrass and rosemary in pots, containers or in flower beds on your balcony or in your garden to have a mosquito free summer. You can use them as herbs in cooking as well. Remember to brush them to release more of their fragrance before your outdoor activity.
