The original seedlings for the bee balm that I planted last year were, unfortunately, grew too tall and not leafy enough, eventually catching some type of mildew several months after being planted in the ground. I thought that was the end of them, but I’ve found patches of their lemony-scented leaves all over my little flower patch this year, and it looks so much healthier! I have bee balm again, and I am overjoyed. I’ve liked this flower since I was a child, and it is a flower beloved by pollinators. Hopefully, this year it will bloom and bring all the little bees to my garden, where they’ll stop by the vegetables and increase my harvest.
The seeds are from Baker Creek (Bee Balm – Spielarten Mix)
