A member of the mint family, lemon balm's bright green leaves have a lemony citrus odor that can only be called "delightful". You'll enjoy the fresh scent in your garden almost as much as the bees that come for its cream-white flowers. Add lemon zing to your dishes or extract the lemon scent and use in a carrier oil. Also repels mosquitoes - so plant it around your patio!

Our 1 gallon lemon balm plants are grown outdoors in our house-made compost & vermicast mix using only sun and water. Also available dried in the fall.
