Lemon Balm

250 Seeds

$ 3.49

(Melissa officinalis) Traditionally used as a medicinal herb, lemon balm is said to have calming, sedative properties and it's lemon-scented leaves are particularly popular for making a delicious, nighttime tea.  We like to freeze the leaves at their peak freshness and store for later use.  When we're ready to use them in tea, we just pull them out of the freezer and steep in a cup of hot water.  The freezing process seems to release more flavor than you get from dried leaves, plus it's so easy.  Plants grow 20-30" tall and prefer full sun to partial shade. Perennial in zones 4-9.  250 seeds per packet.

CULTURE:  Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before average last frost.  Surface sow seeds and cover very lightly with fine potting mix. Transplant outdoors after danger of frost has passed, spacing plants 12" apart.  Can also be direct-sown outdoors two weeks after last frost.  Prefers full sun to part shade.
