Helpful tip from The Garden Geeks: Do you love the smell of lemons but can't grow a lemon tree? There are some lemon scented herbs that may make you very happy. Try growing Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis) or Lemon verbena (Aloysia triphylla) because they both have a nice lemony scent and the leaves of both can be added to food or beverages for a nice lemony taste. You can also grow lemon grass (Cymbopogon citratus). You may also be able to find lemon scented varieties of thyme, catnip, basil or even mint at your local nursery. These all will add a nice lemon scent you your home and garden.
