Planting Instructions

Sow Lemon Balm seeds indoors 6 – 8 weeks before last frost. Use sterile starter mix, and sow the herb seeds on the surface. Do not cover the seeds. Transplant outdoors after frost danger has passed and seedlings have developed their second set of true leaves. For areas with a long growing season, directly sow Lemon Balm herb seeds outside in prepared soil.

At maturity, the herb plant reaches 12-24 inches tall and 12-18 inches wide. The Lemon Balm leaf can be picked at any time. For big harvests snip the upper half of the plant just above a node.
