Dave - Don't worry, the first time I attempted it I harvested almost nothing so I know the pain!

Dianne - Thank you, we ate some last night and I can't say for sure that they were better because I grew them but they sure tasted good.

Andrew - Thanks!

Christa - Yes, they did! I think the tubs are a winner for these, planted another mother sprout in a new tub yesterday so fingers crossed!

Wow, that is an excellent harvest Sid,  more fresh food in the pantry. They look a good size as well, did they come out of one of your bathtubs.

Vetiver grass helps to stabilise soil and protects it against erosion.  It can protect against pests and weeds. Vetiver is also used as animal feed. (Wiki.)

GrowVetiver is a plant nursery run by Dave & Keir Riley that harvests and grows Vetiver grass for local community applications and use. It is based in Beachmere, just north of Brisbane, Australia.
