    Hi there,
    I am a clinical herbalist based in Vancouver and I am currently working with a small team to create free herbal pandemic support kits. One item we are currently seeking is lemon balm (Melissa officinalis). If you have an abundance of untreated lemon balm in your garden, I would love to come an harvest some!
    Thanks very much,
    Gina

    Hi Gina
    I am posting the images of two patches of the plant from different areas. Rubbing the leaves ,gives the same scent. Is this lemon balm ,that you are looking for?
