Product Description

This easy-to-grow perennial herb will attract pollinators to your garden! Considering that they also repel mosquitos, it's a win-win for your yard. Herb Lemon Balm fills its surroundings with a pleasant lemony scent. Its leaves can be dried for later use, such as steeping with other herbs to create a custom tea. Use fresh for a delicious burst of flavor, especially in seafood and salad dishes. With too many uses to list, not to mention its anti-viral properties, Herb Lemon Balm is known to promote restful sleep, reduce anxiety, and aid in both digestion and depression. Plant it in one of our Grow Tubs on the porch or patio, and it will help repel mosquitos, too. 35 days to maturity.
