    Lemongrass is a great herb to have in your kitchen. Used as a flavouring in many Indonesian, Malay and Thai dishes, lemongrass is known for its subtle citrus flavour. Add it to sauces and fish dishes for that extra zing.

    Growing lemongrass in your own home couldnt be easier!

    You will need: 1-3 lemongrass stalks (these can be bought from

    most supermarkets) a glass or small jug Water Rich compost Pot

    1. Place 1 to 3 stalks in a glass or small jug of water and leave on a sunny windowsill until the roots have grown out. This should take about a week.

    How To Grow Lemongrass At Home

    2. Plant the stalks in a pot full of compost, making sure to cover the roots completely. During the summer you can keep lemongrass outside, but make sure to bring it indoors overnight.

    3. Water the lemongrass every couple of days and watch your plant grow.

    4. To harvest the lemongrass, simply trim the stalks 2 to 3 inches above the soil and then wash thoroughly before adding as a flavouring to dishes.

    SapphiresSapphires come from the Corrundum family and all coloured corundum stones are called Sapphires except the red colour which are Rubies. They are mined in Thailand, Burma, Tanzania, Sri Lanka, Australia and are the birthstone for September. Dark blue black sapphires were extremely popular in the 70s, although now a finer blue is much more desirable, with Cornflower blue being the most sought after.

    Sapphires have many Royal connections, with Princess Anne and Princess Diana receiving them as engagement Rings in the last century and Princess Catherine more recently.Portique has a fine selection of Sapphire Jewellery.
