Lemon Balm, Melissa officinalis, is a bushy, herbaceous perennial with lemon-scented leaves 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. 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. The young leaves chopped onto fruit salads give a zesty flavour or steeped in hot water make a refreshing herb tea. Height & Spread 50 x 40 cm

Size guide - Pack of 5 Herb Plug Plants 

Our herb plugs are securely rooted, healthy plugs that would benefit from being grown on in 9/10cm pots for a few weeks before planting out in herb gardens, containers or hanging baskets. Tender varieties will need protecting from frost. Compost volume around 2.5 – 3cm deep x 3.2cm square. Foliage height 1.5cm – 5cm (depending on variety). Full growing instructions are provided.

These herbs are so easy to grow and as they are perennial, will die down in the winter months and re-appear next spring.  Pot them on as for the annual herbs and then plant into pots or the garden.

Top quality plug plants
Thursday, 13 August 2020  | 

Supplied as medium plug plants, they were strong healthy plants with a good top growth and root system. I planted them on for 2 weeks before putting them in large tubs using a good compost mixed with perlite and vermiculite. They have been outside now for a month and all plugs are growing very well. Top quality plants, arrived the day after they were despatched, very well packaged.
