Is it a citrus fruit Rachel or a plant with the same name 🤔

No, not the citrus version but a herb, apparently the leaves have a citrus flavour but I've not tasted them yet Sue @susanhumphrey333

It did get it last year Keely, ended up cutting it right back, but it did come back. It doesn't help that it's right next to the Geranium Wargrave which takes over everything! So I've been keeping that cut back away from it to give it some air! @Keely

Thanks hun I bought the balmy pink one which is a dwarf version last year and doesn't suffer from it like the bigger ones need to find the balmy purple now 💜💕 mums got one in pot and one in garden to see which does best 😄
