Weekly Garden Tip
When you’re mapping your shadows and sunlight hours to ensure your plants get 6-8 hours of sunlight, you only count the sunlight time where there is FULL sun without any shade at all.

As the weather cools and the temperatures begin dipping below freezing, GYOV CEO and Lifestyle Gardener Denise Beins has moved her potted lemongrass plant indoors. If you’re not familiar with lemongrass, it’s a great additive for sauces, soups, and teas.
The flavor of lemongrass is light and does not overpower the other flavors in a meal. Most find lemongrass to simultaneously provide the taste of lemon, ginger, and floral, and it is often used as a substitute for lemon in dishes. Lemongrass is very common in Thai food.
Besides being a delicious additive, lemongrass is a multipurpose natural remedy. It is widely used for digestive issues, neurological problems, and high blood pressure. It also contains antibacterial and antifungal properties and has been utilized as a pain reliever and fever reducer.
Do you also grow lemongrass? Post in the GYOV Garden Adventure Facebook Group and let us know. Pictures are even better!
