Bergamot Lemon Seeds can be sown indoors seven weeks before the last frost or directly in early spring when a light frost is still possible. Optimal soil temperature for germination: 15-21° celsius. Barely cover the tiny seeds with soil. Separate transplants by 45-60cm. Over time, these perennials will grow closer together. The seeds should sprout within 10-40 days. Germination will be accelerated by bottom heat.


Bergamot Lemon Seeds can be planted in any average garden soil. Make sure the seeds are planted in direct sunlight. When summers are long, plants are susceptible to mildew, so avoid overhead watering. Deadhead regularly to prolong the blooming period. The roots of these perennial plants grow by rhizome growth, and they should be dug and divided every three years.
