Citronella Balm Seeds
Citronella Balm is a perennial herb. It grows up to 12-24″ tall. The leaves have a very delicious lemon flavour, and are very aromatic when crushed, even moreso than lemon balm. It has almost double the essentials found in lemon balm. It has all of the same culinary, medicinal, companion planting uses, etc but it is much more potent.
Growing Citronella Balm
Citronella Balm is a perennial herb that is hardy in zones 5 to 9. Grows well in full sun to partial shade. It prefers moist, fertile, well-drained soil with a pH of around 6.9. If growing indoors, be sure to surface sow the seeds as light will help it to germinate. Press the seed firmly into a sterilized soil mixture that you have already watered. Keep the soil moist but not soggy. If starting the seeds outdoors, surface sow the seeds and then lightly cover with soil or sphagnum peat moss. Once the plants are established they can tolerate dry conditions, but it is better to give them lots of water once the soil starts to get dry.
