Lemon Balm is a versatile companion plant. Medicine, culinary herb and insect repellent.


Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) often referred to as "Melissa", is a perennial member of the mint family that has been used in cooking and medicine for centuries. Ptolemy praised the herb in ancient Greece and if you try it with fish you will be amazed. As with all the mints, this multipurpose plant is extremely invasive and can quickly carpet your garden and strangle other plants. The lazy gardener should keep lemon balm in pots to keep its spreading aspect under control. Lemon balm appreciates a semi-shady spot and is a hassle-free herb to grow. Just regularly pinch out the flower spikes to encourage vegetation.

As a companion plant to cannabis, lemon balm repels mosquitoes and gnats while attracting beneficial pollinators to your garden. You can crush a leaf to rub on insect bites and a sweet lemon tea made from the dry herb is said to improve memory, but is more commonly used for its relaxing and uplifting properties. At season's end, lemon balm will die back and hibernate over winter only to come on in a rush once the warmth of spring arrives. The reappearance of perennials is a good way to judge when it is time to germinate your cannabis.

    Title : Lemon Balm: Melissa Officinalis
    Comment : This is my namesake herb. I grew them last year, planted in spring and had a stunning crop in about 30 -40 days. This year I've got seedlings in the nursery under LED lights, on their way to being planted under the grow lights as companions. . RQS companion seeds are all very healthy, and all have sprouted well and grow beautifully. Lemon Balm is calming and has a lovely refreshing lemony smell.

    Title : Happy Gardener
    Comment : I was pleased to find this plant when I read you can have companion plants in the grow tent as well I thought with this plant it will smell nice as well as keeping away the horrible bugs but if you have a clean home + that you clean your tent after every use you wont have any problems, I read that the lemon balm plant strangles every other plant so I thought I wont put them into the same pot as my ladies but there growing nicely in there own pot. Thanks RQS Respect, You have allot to offer
