(Lemon Balm) Enjoy the fresh scent of Lemon Balm fresh from your garden. Standing 24 inches tall and wide, Lemon Balm forms an upright mounding habit. The scent is lemony with a hint of mint, the leaves resemble that of mint, as Lemon Balm is part of the mint family. Lemon Balm is perfect for teas, salads, seasoning fish or poultry, and more. We recommend trimming you plant back regularly to keep a nice appearance and habit. Planted in full sun, Lemon Balm likes to be grown in moist well drained soil, we recommend fertilizing if you are harvesting often. Lemon Balm is also known to help keep the mosquitos away.
