Melissa seeds


The variety ‘Quedlinburger Niederliegende’ is renowned, because it contains a higher content of essential oils than the common lemon balm.

For us, the reasons for loving and cultivating lemon balm are endless: perfect in the kitchen, indispensable in cosmetics, useful in medicine and above all with a fabulous smell, between mint and lemon.

The highly complicated name comes from the town of Quedlinburg, which lies just north of the Harz Mountains in Saxony. While ‘Niederliegende’ can be translated as ‘procumbent’, a botanical adjective which stands for ‘that spreads over the ground without taking root’.

A plant that should be in every garden.
