Monarda Bergamia
[0.2 gram]

Monarda Bergamia

Monarda ia also well known as Bee Balm. Masses of flower spikes bearing tiers of soft mauve flowers are produced by this quick and easy to grow border plant. It flowers easily in its first season from an early sowing, producing a bold display of lilac and violet flowers over a long period. Exceptional for its unusually shaped flowers on strong square stems and the rich minty fragrance, which is freely released when the plant is brushed. Height 80cm. As well as being colourful, the petals have a sweet, spicy flavour and will enhance salads, jellies, stuffing, rice and pasta dishes. Fresh or dried leaves can be used to make bergamot tea.

Sow from late winter to mid summer. Make sure the compost is moist but not wet and seal in a polythene bag until after germination which usually takes 10-30 days at 20-25C. Reducing the soil temperature at night aids germination.
