Listing Detail Tabs

Lemon Balm is a hardy perennial that grows into a bush about 60cm round.

It belongs to the mint family and looks very similar, with light green, ridged leaves.

Lemon balm is an easy to care - it likes some shade during the hot part of the day or it will wilt slightly. It is very drought tolerant and doesn't like wet feet, and prefers a loose, fairly fertile soil. It will tolerate dry soil as well.
It can be harvested within 6-8cm from the base of the plant each time and it comes back with vigor!

To harvest, cut the whole stems within a few cm of the base of the plant, gather into groups of 5-6 stems, tie and hang in a warm, airy location. When dry, strip off the leaves, store in a covered container and use as needed.

Uses - Lemon balm, with its delicate lemon scent and flavour, is valued as a culinary, cosmetic and medicinal herb. Fresh sprigs are used to top drinks and as garnishes on salads and main dishes. Fresh or dried leaves make a refreshing tea, either iced or hot.
Dried leaves are used as an ingredient in many pot-pourris and the oil is used in perfume.
