Lemon balm is good for adding lemon flavor to dishes, especially fish and chicken dishes. It can also be used to make tea and as potpourri. Many people also claim that if you rub it on your skin, it makes a good insect repellent.

Bugs

I am growing an organic vegetable garden indoors on covered backyard. I have little tiny, grey gnat-like bugs with wings all over the dirt. The dirt is composed of organic potting soil and organic redworm casting compost. The vegetable victims include small tomato plants, pepper plants, marjoram, cilantro, lemon balm, and basil. These stupid bugs appear to be inhibiting the plants’ growth. I need an organic way to get rid of these pests. No Roundup or pesticides, as this is poison to our bodies when we eat the food, and causes brain damage in people. What can I do?

The very best organic pest control I have found is neem oil. It's very effective and safe for beneficial bugs, like bees and lady bugs. It's also safe for humans. Here is more information on neem oil: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/problems/pests/neem-oil-uses.htm

What kind of light is best for the lemon balm to plant in? I have mostly full sun and don’t want it to burn. What do you suggest?
