Like most herbs, balm has a long history of medicinal use dating back some 2000 years and the genus name Melissa is derived from the Greek word for bee.  Lemon Balm, Melissa officinalis, has lemon-scented leaves and is a bushy, herbaceous perennial that is often grown in cottage garden flower beds as well as in herb patches. The tiny white flowers grow on two small spikes and these attract a myriad of pollinating bees. Suggestions for us would be to chop the young leaves onto fruit salads give a zesty flavour or steeped in hot water make a refreshing herb tea.

Growing in our nursery, these pots will be ready to put in their final position when they arrive to you.
