Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
Clumps of aromatic foliage play host to whorls of scarlet flowers throughout summer. Monarda 'Fireball' has a more compact habit than older cultivars and shows less susceptibility to mildew, so you can confidently plant it in a prominent spot. The shorter stems also make this Bergamot good for cutting. This attractive hardy perennial, is free flowering, easy to grow and a magnet for bees, butterflies and other insects. Height: 60cm (24"). Spread: 40cm (16").

Culinary note: Use the dried leaves to make Bergamot tea or use the sweet, spicy flavoured petals to enhance salads, jellies, rice or pasta dishes. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Flowering Months
Feed and water regularly until they are fully established. Deadhead faded bergamot flower heads to encourage more blooms to be produced. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure around the crown of each plant in spring. Lift and divide clumps of monarda plants every 3 years in autumn to maintain vigorous, healthy growth.
Bergamot plants dislike soils which are particularly dry or have a tendency to waterlogging. Plant them in a moist, well drained soil, adding compost or well rotted manure to amend excessively heavy clay or sandy soils. Choose a position in sun, semi shade or dappled shade.
