How to Easy Grow Lemon Balm Plants

Lemon balm is an ancient herb native to southern Europe that is closely related to mint. It features similar crinkled oval leaves and has a fresh citrus smell and aroma that many home cooks love to add to salads, soups, and more.

Lemon balm also has a unique medicinal history: its use as a healer dates back to ancient Greece and Rome, where its leaves were used in a variety of tonics and teas, and its essential oils were extracted to help with digestive problems.

This versatile herb grows quickly outdoors: After planting in early spring, it's not uncommon to see a lemon balm plant grow more than a foot tall (sometimes even two!) in a single season.

For this reason, many gardeners choose to plant lemon balm in containers, grown indoors or outdoors, in an attempt to control its invasive nature. Like many other herbs, lemon balm thrives best outdoors, but it can also be successfully grown indoors as long as proper attention is given to its unique needs.
