Lemon Balm

Lemon Balm (aka Melissa officinalis ) gets it's own special page....well because of who she is......Oh did I not mention that I, The Garden Lady, is also known as Melissa?  Well now you know.

This Herb is named after me so of course when I saw it I just had to grow it. But you know what?  I fell in love with it right away.  This strong lemon scented plant grows much like a mint......yeah watch out she will take over your garden if your not careful.  But also like a mint she likes water.....what I mean is dont' have a rooted Lemon Balm plant?  Take a healthy cutting and stick it in some spring water and a week later you have roots.....just be warned....she will take over your garden just like to sweet smelling mints can.
