Lemon balm is in the mint family. Lemon balm is a strong, aromatic herb used commonly to infused oils, teas, syrups and sauces. Fresh leaves reveal a sweet lemon zest taste with a hint of mint
Lemon balm plants will grow in part shade to full sun, but flourish best in full sun. Water deeply enough to saturate the roots, and then allow the top of the soil to dry slightly before watering again, as soggy soil may cause the plant to rot.
