The green leaves of lemon balm have the scent of lemon with a hint of mint, with leaves that look like oversized mint no surprise, since lemon balm is part of the mint family. Lemon balm can grow 24 to 36 inches tall and makes a nice green clump of medium-textured leaves among the other herbs and flowers in your garden.

The plant looks best when it is cut back periodically, so plan to use lots of fresh, flavourful leaves to brew tea, flavour fruit or green salad, and season fish. Be sure to include stems in bouquets of summer flowers. Latin name Monarda citriodora.

The flowers are lovely cut for the house and will give a fresh scent to every room!

PACKETS MAY BE TAGGED LEMON BALM OR LEMON MINT (SAME THING!) SEEDS ARE SMALL/MEDIUM SIZE, DARK COLOURED, EASY TO SEE AND HANDLE.

Grow Notes
Prefers full or part sun in moist, well-draining soil.

Space plants 50cm apart.

This plant responds well to cutting, growing back twice as thick. Whenever your plant is looking tired due to drought, hail, insects, or other stress, just cut it back and let it rejuvenate itself with fresh, new growth.

Because most people harvest it continually for lots of leaves, lemon balm needs a little fertilizer.

Sow
Raise seedlings in Spring, sowing at 3mm depth in seed raising mix.

Keep the soil moist, never wet.

Germination
7-14 days at 19-21°C

Maturity
60-70 days.
