How to Save Seeds

Lemon balm prefers well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Amend your soil with compost or well-rotted manure before planting. Sow the seeds in the spring or fall, either directly in the garden or in seed trays. Lemon balm seeds are very small, so sprinkle them lightly on the soil surface and cover with a thin layer of soil. Keep the soil moist until the seeds germinate. Once the seedlings have grown a few inches tall, thin them out to about 12 inches apart to allow room for growth. Lemon balm needs regular watering, especially during dry spells. Fertilize the plants with a balanced fertilizer once a month during the growing season. Harvest the leaves as needed throughout the growing season. Lemon balm leaves are best used fresh, but they can also be dried for later use.
