Quite unlike ordinary catmint, handle or squeeze the leaves and they give off a rich lemony fragrancy which pervades the garden with rich flowery perfume on still, warm summer evenings. It's easy to grow and can be treated as either annual or perennial making a good border or summer hedge plant.
Culinary note: The strong, minty/spicy flavoured flowers can be used sparingly in pasta or rice dishes. For more details about edible flowers click here.
When the seedlings are large enough to handle transplant into 7.5cm (3in) pots, grow cool and finally plant out 30cm (12in) apart into a sunny spot in free draining soil.
Overwinter autumn sown plants in a well ventilated cold-frame and plant out in spring.
