Lemon Balm (Melissa Officinalis) - a sunny-bloomed perennial that grows 2 feet tall and hails from the Mediterranean, Russia, Syria, Iran, and Turkestan. Traditional use? Not picky on soil type and prefers shade more than the sun. Seeds need light to germinate - lightly sandpaper 'em, plant in fall/early spring, and give 'em a 2-week cold bath (or learn more about stratifying and scarifying seeds here). Cover with soil, press it down, and keep it moist - they'll sprout in 10-40 days. Placement? Plant 'em 1-2 feet apart.
