    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.

          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.
