Variegated lemon balm
Melissa officinalis 'Variegata'
You’ve got yourself a ‘happy herb’ right here. Evoking childhood memories of warm summer days and sherbet lemons! Use as a relaxing tea to soothe headaches and lift the spirits.
Goes very well in a cocktail or jug of Pimms too.
Grow in full sun, with some midday shade. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged. Trim back regularly to maintain a compact shape.
All herbs are planted in a peat reduced compost mix with added perlite for extra drainage.
Choose whether you receive your herb planted up in an Italian terracotta pot, with a matching saucer - or if you already have a pot in mind, keep it in its nursery pot. (
