Medium_5c68c56f-dec2-4437-a6ac-31a1fb7f5053 Mysterious herb growing in my jasmine pot.

I have recently been away and when I came back I found a very healthy looking plant growing in the pot with my jasmine.
I was wondering if you could identify it for me.
I have attached a photo.
My first thought was Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis) but when picked and rubbed the leaves have more of a lime smell than a lemon one.
I do have lemon balm in my garden but it’s struggling in the pot it’s in.
Thanks Mel

Answer: Hi Mel,
Thank you for contacting Yates.

The herb looks like mint to me. To feed, try Yates Thrive Veggie & Herb Natural Fish Blood & Bone+ Concentrate, the dual acting formula feed through both leaves and roots to boost healthy grown and yield of veggies and herbs.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
