    How much is a lemon balm bush and are there different sizes . Do you know if they really repel mosquitoes?

      Right now I have 1 gal. lemon balm plants for $6.
      There are a lot of mosquito repelling herbs that do a so-so job, including lemon balm.

    How in the world do you keep your plants watered and from wilting in this heat? Have you written a book on Florida Herb Gardening we can purchase (good idea!)? I’d love to have an herb garden but not sure how to set up a good system to grow and water and not sure the best way to harvest and dry…and work fulltime…

      Ahh..yes…the heat has been a challenge this year! Most of the summer we had rain every day so I lost a lot of herbs in the ground due to that and then the heat seemed to go on & on as did the watering. Better to keep the garden fairly small if you only have a little time. Less frustration that way. Pots are a good alternative for many herbs. You can regulate the water better in pots.

    Good morning . I was wondering what the price is for Simphytum Uplandica and how available it is ? Thanks Don.

        Thanks Debbie. I just have to prepare a spot for them then I’ll get back in touch with you. Perhaps you can give me information about raising them in florida.
