Recipes for lemon balm

Chef's specials

Lemon balm is a perfect add to infusions, thanks to its lemony flavour. Boil water and add some washed leaves. You can either drink it hot or cold, with some ice cubes.

The seeds are organic* and the growth guaranteed

Agriculture Biologique Produit en France

Our seeds all come from French seed sellers. More than half of our seeds are organic. The substrate in which they grow is made from coconut peat and coir. Pods are made out of bioplastic and are biodegradable: when your plants grow tired you can repot them or compost them.

includes all the ingredients needed to ensure the best growth possible for your plants: water, light, and nutrients. If your pod happens to be a little mischievous (which can happen, as with every other living product), we'll send you another pod prompto! You can check out our FAQ for more information.

* Almost all of the seeds we work with are organic.

Système hydroponique

The pod

An innovative hydroponic system.

Thanks to our patented Float® design, you only have one thing to do: add water once every two or three weeks when the floater sinks. The plant takes all mineral salts it needs out of the water (these are released into the water over the weeks). Discover the Prêt à Pousser technology.

Questions /Answers about lemon balm

Could you repeat the question please?

Questions /Answers

    • My Lemon Balm takes all the available space!

      Lemon Balm can grow quite rapidly and it's not uncommon for it to overshadow its neighbours. Don't hesitate to repot your plant to make some space in your indoor garden.

    • The leaves of my Lemon Balm are turning brown, what should I do?

      After all the effort of growing leaves, your Lemon Balm will tire a bit. It's better to cut it a bit, so it can use its energy on a smaller amount of leaves. However, make sure to leave at least 15cm of your plant.

    • Can I dry the leaves of my Lemon Balm and use them later?

      It's possible to dry the leaves, but the therapeutic effect of your Lemon Balm will decrease. If you decide to dry the leaves, make sure to use them within 2 or 3 months, otherwise they will lose their aroma.
