Product Overview

With a lemony fragrance and mild taste, Lemon Balm is often combined with other herbs to make teas or sachets, or to flavor poultry dishes, fish recipes, or desserts. This plant is a member of the mint family, so it spreads quickly; for that reason, you may want to grow it in a container. Plant Lemon Balm near a gate or walkway, where it will release its heavenly scent whenever you brush by.

        A great herb to add to a summer drink
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These two planks were delivered by UPS. They were packed very well and arrived in excellent condition. When you are making that summer drink pinch off and adds a few leaves to make a refreshing beverage. These plans grow very quickly so you should always have plenty of leaves to harvest.
