  4. I grow lots of herbs but not lemon balm. It is interesting that it doesn’t do well when cooked. It must be pleasant in drinks though.

  7. If I allow the lemon balm to flower in my garden (and it’s hard to stop it) then it tends to seed itself. I had two plants three years ago and I think I’ve got 12 or 15 now. The variegated form seems to be a bit less vigorous but it does tend to revert to pure green quite often. My plants seem happy to grow in the shade or sun and damp or dry soil – in fact, anywhere you least expect it. I tend to use it in summer drinks mostly but I came across some really good ice creams and sorbets using it last year. I think I also saw some cheese flavoured with lemon balm once – but I may have dreamed that. It really doesn’t work in cooked dishes like other herbs, though – I think it ends up tasting a bit like stale cabbage if it’s cooked in, say, a casserole.
