This bright pink flowered Monarda ‘Cranberry Lace’ is a short, fast-growing yet compact Bergamot, perfect for cottage garden borders. With aromatic foliage below tall stems of tubular petals in spidery clusters, they are interesting-looking perennials, with the added benefit of being easy to grow with a built-in resistance to the problem of powdery mildew. Their flowers are loved by bees so are great for the wildlife in your garden. Height: 90 cm (36"). Spread: 45cm (18").

Culinary information: Use the dried leaves to make Bergamot tea or use the sweet, spicy flavoured petals to enhance salads, jellies, rice or pasta dishes. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Flowering Months
Feed and water plants regularly until they are fully established. Deadhead faded flower heads to encourage more blooms to be produced. Cut back old foliage in autumn. Apply mulch of well rotted manure around the crown of each plant in spring. Lift and divide clumps of Monarda plants every 3 years in autumn to maintain vigorous, healthy growth.
Bergamot plants dislike soils which are particularly dry or have a tendency to waterlogging. Plant them in a moist, well drained soil, adding compost or well rotted manure to amend excessively heavy clay or sandy soils. Choose a position in sun, semi shade or dappled shade.
