Melissa officinalis (Lemon Balm) 12cm Pot

5.50 “Price excl. VAT: 5.50

Lemon balm, Melissa officinalis, is a robust herbaceous perennial grown for its aromatic foliage, which can be used in desserts and to make a revitalising herbal tea. In the summer months it produces small white flowers that are a hit with bees. Use a small handful of fresh leaves, then steep and strain to make tea that can be enjoyed hot or iced.

Like mint, it’s a particularly rampant grower, so is best confined to a raised bed or container where it can’t spread too much.

For best results, grow Melissa officinalis in moist, well-drained soil in full sun or partial shade. Cut back after flowering to promote fresh growth and prevent seeds from forming.

Melissa officinalis is known for attracting bees. It has nectar/pollen rich flowers.
