Starting new plants from Bee Baum ??
I bought a bee baum, my first and wondering how to start more plants from my adult plant..With the woody stem I can't imagine rooting a stalk in water. I have two in water but like I said I can't imagine they will root...Help?
Bee balm will spread via runners at a moderate rate if it is happy where it is. That means at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily and moist soil. Above ground runners send up new shoots so the easiest way to propagate bee balm is to divide it in early spring. Bee balm can also be grown from seed. The following link goes to a number of articles on bee balm, including growing from seed and cuttings. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/bee-balm
