Little Lemon Balm and Parsley seedlings have popped out of the soil in my balcony garden! The Lemon Balm seedlings are struggling a bit, but I see more of them germinate every day. I hope they grow big and strong during spring and summer.
The weather is warming up and I’ve pulled up the old mint, I grew from seeds a couple of years ago to start almost from scratch. It bascally outgrew everything and nearly killed my lemon balm.
This year I will limit the amount of plants I keep in my large pots. I’ve decided to let my old lemon balm grow in one pot, completely undisturbed. Hopefully it will spread out and fill the whole pot in no time. To help it along, I planted the rest of my seeds in the bare soil next to the adult plant. I used the leaves to make ice tea last summer and it was so delicious!
I’ve kept my seed grown thyme and parsley from a couple of years ago too. They don’t grow too aggressively and will be able to stay in their shared pot this year, like they have done for the past couple of years.
