Nepeta are annuals or perennial plants with intense scented leaves and graceful tubular flowers that can be implemented to form clumps, creating an exquisite bushy habit. Alternatively, they can be dispersed between companion plants and shrubs. They are often referred to as ‘Catmint’. Nepeta are best positioned in flower beds and borders or used as under planting for roses and shrubs within a cottage, informal or wildlife garden setting. You should expect to see Nepeta to grow to an approximate height of 1m (40”) and a spread of 60cm (24”).
Nepeta are best planted in well-drained soil of clay, chalk or loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. The best time to plant Nepeta is during the spring, ensuring you leave at least a foot of space between your plants as Nepeta do require plentiful room to spread and grow effectively. They are best positioned in an area of full sun but will also tolerate part shade.
Nepeta plants are relatively low maintenance and therefore there are no special requirements associated with their care. It is important to consistently water your plants thoroughly until they are well established. Deadhead any spent flowers on a regular basis as this will encourage further flowering and cut back hard during the spring to promote healthier and prosperous growth.
