General Information: If you are looking to add a versatile and beneficial herb to your garden, consider growing lemon balm. Lemon balm, also known as Melissa officinalis, is a perennial herb that belongs to the mint family. It is native to the Mediterranean region and has been used for centuries for its medicinal properties.

Lemon balm is a hardy plant that is relatively easy to grow, making it a great choice for both experienced and novice gardeners. It thrives in full sun or partial shade and prefers well-drained soil. With proper care, lemon balm can grow up to 2 feet tall and produce beautiful, fragrant leaves.

One of the main benefits of growing lemon balm is its aromatic leaves. The leaves have a refreshing lemon scent, which makes them a popular choice for herbal teas, culinary dishes, and homemade beauty products.



To harvest lemon balm, simply cut the stems just above a leaf node. This will encourage new growth and ensure a continuous supply of fresh leaves. The leaves can be used fresh or dried for later use.
