Lemon Balm, Organic, Melissa officinalis


This member of the mint family is bushy, green attractive, with a pleasant lemon smell and dainty white flowers when in bloom. Lemon balm will grow in almost any soil, but prefers rich, well drained soil. Lemon balm can become invasive in the garden, but this is because it is such a prolific seeder. Removing flowers as soon as they appear keeps the plant in check and makes it a welcome addition to any kitchen garden. Lemon balm is popular for making teas and jelly. Grows in part shade, but best in full sun. Loved by pollinators! 50 seeds/2.50, 1/2 oz./10.00.
