If you notice small flower buds, make sure to pinch them off. Harvest the leaves as soon as the plant is established and put on new growth. The plant can tolerate a little shade but requires at least 5-6 hours a day of sun. Lemon Balm is a rapid grower outdoors, mature size runs between 1.5 to 2 feet tall and 1.3 to 3 feet wide.

All the seeds I ordered from you

I started my seeds on 2/19. Yesterday 3/8 I replanted. The germination was horrible. Out of many, many lemon balm seeds, two plants are coming up. Out of 10 Helios Habanero only one came up. And so on. I have never had such a terrible ger.ination rate. I sure hope the tomato seeds do better. But I'm not holding my breath.
