  1. Love this video and this is one beautiful garden. Just want to share one of my favorite dishes: minced up the lemongrass, (the part near the root) stir fry together with garlics , onions add sirloin steak (make sure you slice the beef thinly), salt, pepper and soy sauce, serve with steam rice or brown rice. Quick and tasty!

  2. Lemongrass has a pretty good reputation for repelling mosquitoes. I grow it for cooking, but even if you plant this pretty, tall grass near an outdoor sitting area, it could help your evenings be a little more bug free. It also handles container planting very well. In terms of cooking, if you're a fan of hot and sour soup, a Thai version of that is Tom Yum soup, which primarily consists of lemongrass and chili. It has a nice balance of sweet, salty, sour, and spicy, which Thai cooking is notorious for.

  3. Hi Steve, that is a very nice garden and what you do is great!  I am Indonesian, I grow some of those herbs in my small garden here but in about two months we have to move to Austria, sad…i have to leave my  garden and say good bye to my pandanus, kaffir lime, lemon grass and some other herbs. Btw, i would like to ask you whether it is possible or not to grow those such herbs in Vienna? Thank you very much….waiting for your answer…
