Melissa officinalis

Easy-to-grow, aromatic and decorative plant with beautiful green foliage that if allowed to flower attracts pollinators. For best harvest however the plant should not be allowed to flower - harvest regularly and cut back the entire plant occassionally to 1/3 to rejuvenate. The fresh, lemon-scented leaves are used for sauces, in fish and vegetable dishes, as garnish, in drinks and for tea. Leaves can be dried for later use.

Lemon balm prefers cooler conditions, if growing outside in container avoid dark colored or glazed pots, which will absorb and retain heat on hot days.

Can be grown all year round on the windowsill. Sensitive to frost. Thrives in most soils.

The roots of lemon balm grow vigorously, if grown as perennial in containers lift and divide the plant once a year or two to rejuvenate.
