Lemon Balm Growing Tips and Advice

Lemon balm loses its aroma quickly after it dries, but adds great flavor to teas and vegetable dishes. This herb likes just about anything: full sun or lots of shade and this plant can be grown from seeds, cuttings or divisions. Lemon balm does prefer frequent waterings and fertile soil.


 

Planting Lemon Balm

If you begin with seeds, use a plastic bottom and press the seeds down very lightly. Avoid drying out the seeds, which take a fairly long time to germinate. You should place transplanted plants about it 1½ ft. apart. You can also grow this herb by layering. Shear plants back frequently to contain growth.


Days to Harvest: Any time
Days to Germinate: 14-21
