Lemon Balm

Repels Mosquitos

Easy-go-grow perennial herb has many uses in the garden and the kitchen. Resembling mint in appearance and growing about 20 inches tall, lemon balm fills the garden air with a pleasant lemon scent, attracts pollinators and repels mosquitos. In the kitchen, it can be used with other herbs to create a custom tea or add a burst of flavor to seafood and salads. Can be grown in containers. For best results, sow seeds in well-drained soil in full sun. Zones 3-7. 35 DAYS.



For each offer ordered, get 1 pkt of approx. 250 seeds
