Lemon Balm

I'm keeping this lemony mint in a pot since I've heard it can invade your whole flowerbed.

When I had it in my previous garden it didn't spread but it did form very large clumps and could get rather unsightly.
I love it's smell.

Very smart of you, Judi! I have that stuff like a knife in the back...it seeds so well, and it's roots are so tough that you will need a whip and a chair to control it!! lol... If you like the mints, I would suggest the same tactic with them.... I have a spot in my back garden where I just planted mint to fill in...and it does that just great...smells wonderful if you happen to nick it with the lawn mower!
