Lemon Balm

A member of the mint family with a lovely mild lemony scent. A refreshing herbal tea can be brewed from its dried leaves. Grows to 3′ tall with small white or yellow flowers.

Start indoors under strong lights 8 to 10 weeks before transplanting. Barely cover seeds as they need light to germinate. Pick leaves to dry before flowers bloom for culinary use. Pinch back flowers to extend harvest. Makes a delightful and aromatic houseplant if given sufficient light.
