How to Harvest Lemon Balm
Grow Lemon Balm for a fragrant garden and aromatic harvests for teas and cocktails. Follow our tips below to promote the plant to grow back for continuous harvests.
HOW TO HARVEST Lemon Balm:
- After about 6 weeks of growth, when the plants are at least 6" tall, identify the top cluster of leaves, above the second set of leaves on the main stem.
- Take a pair of scissors, and snip the main stem right below this top cluster and above the second set of leaves. This will allow for the plant to grow side-shoots and develop into a lush, bushy plant for additional harvests in just a few days.
- Use your harvests in refreshing herbal teas and cocktails.
