Details

The medieval Frankish king, Charlemagne had lemon balm planted in every monastery garden for the beauty of its crinkled and wonderfully fragrant foliage, and pretty white flowers.

Lemon balm is valued as a culinary, cosmetic and medicinal herb. Use fresh sprigs to top drinks and as garnishes on salads and main dishes. Fresh leaves give a nice lemon flavor to salads, soups, sauces and meats. The fresh or dried leaves make a great cold or hot tea, and the dried leaves can be used in potpourris. Traditionally valued as a medicinal herb, lemon balm has mild sedative properties.

Medicinal: Aerial parts used in teas for colds, flu, headache, and indigestion. Sedative. Antiviral.


Welcome to our 2022 Plant Start Sale! Along with our large collection of seeds offered at www.GardenHoard.com, this year, we are selling our plant starts online as well! Normally, we bring these plant starts to May and June Farmers' Markets, but with continued uncertainty surrounding public events, we understand that you may want to shop for plants in a safer environment!
 

We have developed a contactless pickup system for these plant starts. Mid-May through June we will be offering pickup at our farm in Howell, MI. The system will involve you receiving a pickup email to schedule a date and time, and your order being available for safe, secure, contactless pickup.
 

While we will not be physically available to tell you about your amazing plants, we will be including extremely helpful instructions along with detailed information about the plants you chose! It will be just like talking to us at the Farmers' Markets, but without the crowds and health risks!
 

Simply make your plant selection by adding each plant you want to your shopping cart. When you check out, select "On-Farm Pickup". When the plants are available (beginning Mid-May), you will receive a pickup email with details on where to find your order! If you require a special delivery because of health concerns, or need to change your pickup date/time, please respond to your pickup email and we will do our best to accommodate you.
 

If you order seeds with your plants, we will send those to you in the mail, prior to plant pickup day!
