This is the first year in many that I haven't had a clump or two of lemongrass in the garden, planted at the entrance to the area like welcome signs. In cooking, we've used fine strips of the leaves, as well as the bulbs. The bulbs freeze well, too, so last year's is what we've used this season. The best mosquito/tick repellent spray I've ever used is lemongrass leaves, chopped coarsely and made into a strong tea with a few whole cloves tossed in. Works good and smells good, too.
