    Do its leaves smell lemony when you crush them in your hand?  If so it’s Melissa officinalis aka Lemon balm. Loved by bees (little white flowers on the stems full of nectar) and you can make a lovely soothing infusion (a handful of leaves in a mug ... steep in boiling water for a couple of minutes, remove leaves and sweeten with honey). Great before bedtime. 

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.
