Cultivation advice

Sowing

Lemon balm should be pre-grown. Sow the small black seeds shallowly and be careful so they don't dry. The seedlings are affected by frost, so wait to set out until the risk of frost is over. 


Spacing

Keep 25-35 cm between the plants.

Harvest

Harvest the shoots and leaves just before they begin to bloom for tea, herbs etc! This herb keeps its taste well after drying. Do not pick only the leaves, but the stem as well. Otherwise it will continue to grow, but without leaves.

Seed

2000 seeds/g.

A portion contains about 400 seeds.
