Melissa officinalis Seed Propagation
Indoors: Surface sow 6-8 weeks early into packs or containers of sterile soil. Press in to firm. Very light vermiculite cover to help retain moisture if necessary. Keep only slightly moist, not wet. Bottom feed to keep flats from drying out & prevent seeds from dislodging. Provide bright light, maintain 65-70F soil temperature for germination 10-14 days. Grow on in slightly cooler temperatures 
Outdoors: Surface sow outdoors late Spring when soil temperatures are a reliable 50F night time. Sow where plants are to grow. Cover very lightly if necessary. May want to use wire or netting to prevent¬† rodents from eating your seeds. Thin to 12-18″ apart¬†
