Melissa officinalis

We are here to sing the praises of this overlooked and misunderstood beneficial perennial herb! We grow hedgerows in many places all over our farm. One of the best for honey bees. Their have a long bloom period into the summer months, when not much is available to them. They provide a literal bee symphony for weeks.
Lemon Balm tea, fresh or dried, is one of the most important medicinals. It's delicious lemon flavour, once infused or steeped for 10 minutes, has a multitude of uses. It is antiviral, antibacterial, sedative, loaded with antioxidants, relieves stress and anxiety, high blood pressure, tension headaches, indigestion, vertigo, insomnia. A topical cream relieves cold sores and useful for cuts and wounds. Very easy to grow. Thrives in poor soils, it is drought tolerant, and deer and bunnies don't touch it.
Provide a location where it can establish itself and spread to it's heart content. Direct sow in the spring in all Zones and can also sow in fall in Zone 8. Barely cover the seed. Scarification, or rubbing gently with a fine sandpaper can speed germination. This is a very generous seed packet in our efforts to encourage you to bring this gem back to our gardens!
