How to Grow Orange Scented Balm from Seed

Seeds can be sown between March-May covering with some perlite or finely sieved compost. Place the pots into a heated propagator and after the seeds have germinated transplant the seedlings into individual pots when large enough to handle. Germination can take up to 3 weeks.

The plants will thrive in sun or partial shade and can be moved outdoors when all danger of frost is passed.
