If you’re a fan of fresh herbs and spices, you’ll love growing Lemon Melissa in your garden. This perennial herbaceous plant has highly branched rhizomes that can reach heights of 60-120 cm. The leaves and flowers contain an essential oil that has a delightful lemon scent, making it a popular ingredient in cooking, perfumery, and cosmetics.
Lemon Melissa can be propagated generatively by seeds or vegetatively by dividing the rhizomes. The primary method of propagation is through producing seedlings from seeds in open beds. Direct sowing is only recommended under irrigation conditions, while winterization in October-November or early spring is preferred for non-irrigated conditions.
This heat-loving and light-loving plant prefers well-fertilized soils with high soil and air humidity. It can tolerate some shading but grows best in full sun. With its fragrant and versatile properties, Lemon Melissa is an excellent addition to any garden. Buy your seeds online at Mall Agro today and start growing your own!
