Double Decker sport in an old bee balm bed
Bee Balm is a heavy feeder and a good organic mulch will help keep it going.
I'm lucky and have a horse stable nearby that makes mountains of old bedding consisting of small wood chips/shavings.
Drive by and you will probably spot me tunneling into the composted center.
If you have enough space I recommend planting a huge bed and setting up a sitting area.
Hummingbirds will come from far and wide and you can sit right next to them.
Bee Balm has a tendency to die off in the original spot planted.
It's best to disturb the soil and let it grow back in.
Don't worry about chopping up the roots they seem to like it.
Beside the rhizomes from outside that spot will quickly move in,
