I am trying to post a pic but struggling at mo. Thanks tho for your answer. The bush is about 5ft tall & prob same wide. The leaves look a bit like bay leaves too & has a very strong lemony scent. Thanks again.

Oh no then not Lemon Balm! not that big i don't think will have a think!!!

Definitely not lemon balm then. How about lemon verbena? Then again that's not got bay-like leaves either, too thin, and isn't supposed to grow above 3ft tall. Hope you manage to post a pic - I'm quite curious about what it could be.

Oh bless you - thank you. I looked at Lemon Balm on the net & the leaves were not the same - mine are more of a rubbery feel.

Ooooh, it's not an actual lemon tree is it?
