What is Lemon Balm?

Lemon balm is a fragrant summer herb with a lemony taste.   (It is part of the mint family.)  The green foliage and white fragrant flowers are perfect almost anywhere - it will fit right in if you have a cottage, coastal, courtyard, elegant or even potted garden.  The bees absolutely love it too!  

Culinary Uses for Lemon Balm 

Lemon Balm makes a gorgeous zesty herbal tea.  Alternatively, you can add the whole leaves to green salads, a couscous salad or slice and sprinkle this zesty herb over a fruit salad.  Pick the leaves frequently to ensure a continuous supply!

Growing Conditions - Lemon Balm

This easy-care native of the Mediterranean loves the full sun but will survive in part shade.  It isn't fussy about soil types.  While it doesn't like wet roots, it does best if you keep the soil moist. 

Lemon balm is best planted in spring for a summer harvest.  It will grow to about 60 cm high over summer, die away over winter and return next season.  Like its cousin mint, it can spread, so it is best to plant it in a contained space.  Tomato, carrot, lettuce, cabbage, chives, basil, mint are good companion plants for lemon balm.

Shipping Information

We use an overnight courier and specially designed packaging so that your plants arrive in the best condition possible. 

    We offer a replacement guarantee

    To give you peace of mind, we offer a replacement guarantee if your plants do not arrive in good condition.  If there is a problem please let us know as soon as you receive your package and we will work with you to resolve it.

    What will postage cost?

    Postage varies by region, and by parcel size/weight. 

    Customers are asked to choose the correct postage option at checkout (urban or rural). 

    If you order a worm farm or garden bed and plants in the same order, the postage for the worm farm will be added to the postage for the other items.  (These items are dispatched from separate locations.) 

    If you live in the South Island, Waiheke or Great Barrier Island, please contact us for a custom shipping quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz 

    How often do you dispatch?

    To reduce the risk of plants sitting in a courier depot over weekends, we usually ship orders on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday (except public holidays).   

    How do you package your products?

    We take extra care to water plants well and drain them before sending.  Plants are shipped in specially designed packaging, designed to reduce the risk of damage in transit. Trees and bushes are securely wrapped in paper to reduce risk of soil escaping during transit.  They are well supported with scrunched up paper to prevent movement during transit.  


    Where do you deliver to? 

    We deliver to most locations in the North Island - you can order and make payment via our website, Facebook or Instagram stores.  

    South Island, Waiheke and Great Barrier

    While we deliver to the South Island, we ask customers in these locations to email us for a quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz  Shipping to the South Island can be expensive and is extremely variable by location - we like to avoid nasty shocks at checkout! 

    We don’t generally ship to Waiheke, Great Barrier except by special arrangement. (Delivery can be expensive, and we want to ensure that our live plants arrive in good condition.)  If items are small and non-perishable (such as seeds) delivery may be possible.  Contact us to discuss options: info@urbanbounty.co.nz

    Do you deliver to post office boxes?

    Unfortunately live products like plants, garden beds and worm farms can't be delivered to Post Office Boxes. Large items (like garden furniture) are delivered to the nearest freight depot for customer pickup if outside of Auckland.
