My Garden Champions 2013 - Part 3

What is the next plant which surprised me in the year 2013?

Exotic Champion: Lemongrass.

It's pretty easy to grow lemongrass in the garden. Get some fresh stalks from an Asian grocery store, put them in water for couple of weeks and transplant them in soil after roots appear. It's not frost-tolerant so act act accordingly. My lemongrass yielded 10-15 stalks per plant. I gave away about 3/4 of my harvest and still have so much of it in the freezer that I won't need to plant it this year.

I had 7 plants total. This is what 3 plants can give you: Growing Lemongrass in zone 5
