What are the pros? Strong and smells amazing
What are the cons? none
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.

What are the pros? scent, bee attractant
What are the cons? spreads
Grow this in a container as it will spread! But do grow it because the lemony scent is delightful and the bees will flock to your garden. I had huge slug and earwig problems this year but they left it alone. Great for drying. Easy to save seeds.
