How to Plant BEE BALM Seeds

Sow Bee Balm seeds in cell packs or flats, press into soil but do not cover. Light helps Bee Balm seeds to germinate. Kept at 60-70° F., seedlings emerge in 14-21 days. Transplant Bee Balm plants into garden 1-2 feet apart.
Comments: Plant Bee Balms in full sun in mild climates, afternoon shade is preferred in hot summer areas. Bee Balm plants spread quickly, are not invasive. They like regular to ample moisture. Bee Balm plants will be longer-lived in cold winter climates. Widely adapted, Bee Balms are among the absolute best perennial plants for drawing hummingbirds into the garden. Flowers also attract butterflies and honey bees; are excellent cut flowers. Bee Balms are rabbit and deer resistant plants.
