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.
