How to sow and care for Lemon Bergamot
When a light frost is still possible in early spring, gardeners can sow Lemon Bergamot seeds indoors seven weeks before the last frost. Germination takes place at a temperature of 15-21 degrees Celsius. The seeds should barely be covered with soil. Transplants should be spaced 45-60 cm apart. With time, these perennials will grow closer together. Within 10 to 40 days, the seeds should germinate. The heat from the bottom will accelerate germination.
Germination of Bergamot Lemon Seeds is possible in most garden soils. Make sure the seeds are placed in direct sunlight. When summers are long, plants are more prone to mildew, so avoid overhead watering. Make sure to deadhead regularly to prolong blooming. The roots of these perennial plants grow from rhizomes, which should be dug and divided every three years.
