Can anyone tell me where to find lemon grass. I am in
Nassau County (Merrick), and no one has ever heard of
it.

    There is an Asian Market just south of Rangmajal (a
    very good Indian rest.) They stock a great many fresh
    veg. there, and I've seen lemongrass on occassion.

    Very friendly staff.

      Lemon grass is a herb I order by mail from a company
      called Pendery's in Texas. They now have a web site
      at www.penderys.com. The sell every type of herb and
      spice I've ever heard of.

          I grow lemon grass and I just cut it way back since it was taking over the yard. I put armloads out front of my house letting my neighbors take it and it was a big hit.

          I'll mail you some free if you'll pay postage.
