[CentOS] Grep: show me this line and the next N lines?

Can grep show the matching lines and the next N lines after a match?
For instance, I have a config file wit hthe following text:
[Tag h1]
foreground=#2e5a03
underline=double
indent=0
weight=PANGO_WEIGHT_BOLD
scale=2.25

I would ideally grep on "[Tag h1]" and have grep display the match and
the next 5 lines so that I see all the content of the h1 section.

Can this be done?

Thanks!
