A member of the mint family, lemon balm has a pleasant lemony scent and flavor. It is excellent in teas, and is traditionally used as a mosquito repellant. It is a smaller plant, growing more as a groundcover. Less so than catnip, it still can become invasive.
Minimum of 200 seeds per packet.

Good germination, robust growth, lovely coloring to the leaves, and that smell. Ugh. It is glorious. I had no experience with lemon balm until I bought these seeds and now I am a fan for life. The scent from the plants is super strong and very lemony. I've found it grows well even in small containers, though it prefers not to be in the direct sun here in the desert-like southern Colorado area.
This is a great plant from some really nice seed. I would definitely buy these seeds from Annie's again.
