Please let me know how it goes.  I'm tempted to put on one the footpath (along with my mango and macadamia nut).

Oh! Yes I am soaking them for 10 days, then will make a brine :)

Good one.  My son and I bought some raw once and tried to eat them.  That was also about 2016.  I won't make that mistake again.

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.
