Melissa – Lemon Balm Growing Instructions Print

Melissa – Lemon Balm

Sow in late spring to late summer
The seeds need temperatures of around 20°C (68°F) to germinate.
Seeds can be sown indoors in trays or pots containing good quality seed compost, or can be sown directly where they are to grow. Sow seeds thinly in shallow drills in full sun. “Just cover” the seeds with a sprinkling of soil or vermiculite, as they need light to germinate. Germination 12 to 21 days. Days to maturity 30-40 days
They require consistently moist soil; do not let them dry out in between watering. Transplant when they have their first set of true leaves and are still small Lemon balm plants should be spaced 30 to 38cm (12 to 15 in) apart.
