Perennial with hairy, lemon-scented leaves. Spikes of white, pale yellow, or rose flowers from July to September. Grows 24-36" tall. Use dried or fresh. Excellent in salads, cool drinks, teas, wines, and potpourri. Try rubbing fresh leaves on skin or picnic table to repel insects, or add some sprigs to a campfire to keep insects away.
Sprigs can be harvested frequently and should be to encourage new growth and a compact, bushy habit. Although dried lemon balm has much less flavor and aroma than fresh, drying may be the only option. Harvest in early morning after dew is off the plants and just as the plant is coming into bloom. It will dry best if the weather will be hot and dry for the next few days. Any nighttime moisture could turn your leaves brown. Dry in partial or full shade on screens. When drying is complete, store in airtight jars.

In light of everything going on in the world we have implemented some changes to ensure your safety. Our hours will be looking a little different Monday through Friday; we will be having reserved hours for those who are members of the vulnerable population group. 8 am to 9 am will be the time frame set aside for your needs to shop. We are also taking steps to help provide a cleaner environment for you and your loved ones. We have scheduled an employee to come in each morning prior to us opening to clean the store. We also strongly encourage that when you're in the store please practice social distancing. You should be at least 6 ft from others. As of right now we are still not set up to provide services such as curbside assistance. We are trying to do what we can in light of everything going on in the world. We encourage you to practice the safety guidelines that have been ordered by our Governor and Health Department. We appreciate your continued support of our small businesses during these unforeseen difficult times.
