    I planted these seeds in my aerogarden and they grew like crazy. Lemon balm is a member of the mint family, so it grows very quickly. I’ve grown lemon balm before and this seems to be a particularly prolific variety. I had more then I could use from just one plant. Before I realized it, this plant actually grew down off my aerogarden, across the table, and behind a curtian to get some natural sunlight- make sure you’ve got plenty of natural sunlight to grow this!

    Seeds came quickly via USPS, which made me happy to begin with. I put about 25 seeds in 4 plastic cups with starter soil and I’m pretty sure all 100 of the seeds sprouted! The leaves smell wonderful too!

    These are good seeds. Most of what I planted germinated. I have four healthy plants in the back yard now. :)
