Organic Lemon Balm

Perennial | 70 days to harvest | Melissa officinalis

 

HEIRLOOM Fragrant, verdant and astonishingly easy to grow, we love growing Lemon Balm along our perennial herb garden’s edge and in large containers where the vigorously spreading plants can freely roam, thriving in full as well as partial sun. We enjoy Lemon Balm fresh from snow melt through late fall in salad and dressings and all year long we love the mellow lemon tea all summer long. For over 2000 years Lemon Balm has been used medicinally to gently reduce anxiety, muscle tension and both internal and external inflammation; recent science indicates Lemon Balm has a positive effect on depression, insomnia and a broad span of digestive ailments. But of all the reasons to grow Lemon Balm, walking past it and simply smelling its luscious lemon scent is perhaps best of all.

At Fruition, we sow lemon balm indoors in soil blocks six weeks before final frost, transplanting out after final frost with one foot between plants.
