Lemon balm but not as you know it!

This hardy perennial will form large clumps of fragrant foliage all summer long. An ideal addition to beds or borders, its shorter (30-35cm) cascading habit can also be used to cover slopes or difficult areas in the garden. Heights of 31-40cm (12-16"); spread 41-50cm (16-20").
Lemon Balm Mandarina also has many uses. A popular use for this herb would be to steep the leaves hot water to create a relaxing and calming orange flavoured tea. Harvesting from August to mid - October you’ll be able to enjoy this herb plant's stunning fragrance continually throughout the summer months.
Caring for your Lemon Balm Mandarina
Keep your lemon balm plants well-watered during the growing season, particularly during dry spells. Keep the soil moist. Water early in the day so its foliage has time to dry. Lemon balm can also be chopped and frozen.
Sow in small pots/trays of good quality seed compost 0.5cm deep and put on a warm windowsill or propagator at around 21°C. Germination up to 28days. When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into individual pots and grow on, planting outside 30cm (12") apart (or in pots) after all chance of frost has passed.
