Lemon Balm is an herb which is used mainly in cooking, however reptiles enjoy this tasty treat too. It offers a fresh source of vitamins throughout the year. The whole pot can be placed in the enclosure, or it can be grown on the windowsill and stems cut off for feeding. Birds and Mammals also love it. This plant is certified as 100% organic, and has been grown without pesticides.

What does the Lemon Balm look like?

Lemon Balm is highly scented, not from the flowers but the leaves. The leaves are heart shaped with scalloped edges and tend to have a lot of vein creases. This green herb will become bushy with regular pruning and can be cut right back if looking a little under the weather. When in bloom, small white two lipped flowers appear from the foliage.

How do you care for the Lemon Balm?

This plant can tolerate a wide range of conditions but prefers good light with some shade and moisture-retentive soil. It can be kept in hot, dry conditions, however regular watering is a must. Keeping in a pot or container and cutting the leaves when required may be best.
