What are the pros? SUPER plant
What are the cons? none
I planted about 6 seeds about 2 years ago! This plant comes back bigger and better each year! It now is a 10 x10 area because I let it fill in the rest of my herb garden until I could decide what else to grow there. Right now in June before summer has really even sat in, it is already about 4.5 feet tall! The bees and butterflies and even hummingbirds LOVE LOVE LOVE this plant! It provides many uses in cooking and herbal care. Often times I will grab a couple of leaves of this and of mint and throw them in my ice water or tea while I am working in the garden for a nice refreshing and thirst quenching drink! I also use it for salves, balms, and tinctures as well! And I make a mean Lemon chicken that I use this with as well! You can even use it as a substitute for lemon or lemon peel in many dishes! This plant will not disappoint and the seeds are very easy to start and grow!

What are the pros? Strong and smells amazing
First time planting, started much too late in Columbia SC from about November-Febuary and I was astounded at how the small young plants handled many freezing nights. I had beets going as well and the beet greens would wilt and come back when the sun came out, but the lemon balm was not phased. 10/10 would recommend to a friend! The lemon smell is incredible! So potent! Almost smells like citronella a little bit and I read that it helps with fleas/mosquitos. This plant grows like mint and will expand where ever you place it. I would recommend planting in a 3-5 gallon pot and let it take the whole pot. Is great to grow just for the smell and pest control, but tastes great and is very deep green! I'm sure this is packed with minerals as i just transplanted one and the roots were so deep I couldn't believe it! So easy to grow too, I hardly ever watered or tended to this. They are planted in concrete cinderblocks and considered how late I started stuff, this did incredibly well.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, pretty, yummy
What are the cons? None
I had no idea what lemon balm was, but gave it a try, starting it in mini-pots, where it germinated well. I planted it in five places in the garden, and it grew happily in all of them but best in the one with the most light and heat (it has not been a very hot summer here, though). It grows densely in a shapely mound until it is ready to flower and then of course thins out a bit. So far, pests have not bothered it, although a neighbor across town said katydids attacked hers. As other reviewers have said, the fragrance of lemon when you brush up against it in the garden is a delight. I love throwing lightly chopped leaves of lemon balm into a salad.

What are the pros? Wonderful smell,amazing tea.
What are the cons? Really none....spreads quickly
One of my absolute favorites of all the mint type plants
My favorite thing to pick in the garden because of the lovely smell. Anyone who picks it is shocked how much it smells like lemon.

What are the pros? easy to grow
What are the cons? nothing
For people like me who love mints and balms you will love how this taste, it grows and spreads so id plant in a garden box or pot, but year after year it produces and if you sell it its a great money maker.
The taste fresh from pulling leaves has a hint of lemon and I love eating this fresh, I also will pull leaves and wash them and then add them to hot water and make tea. well worth you buying the seeds to start your own and the smallest packet of seeds will produce you many plants after a few years.
