Good time to dry some lemon grass for winter. In colder climates like Melbourne, leaves will die back and get manky anyway, so cut the whole plant back by nearly half (being super careful not to cut through the main growth area in the middle of the plant), give leaves a rinse and shake off and dry in the old herbalist way – hung up in bunched tied with string, in a dark, airy, cool spot. Outside is not a good place to do this, try a laundry or a dark corner of your home. After a couple of weeks, snip leaves into 1cm lengths and store in a dark, sealed tea tin.
