Herb gardening for the whole family - pets included! The soft, crinkled, gray-green leaves on this compact, mounding plant make Catmint great for containers and the perennial garden. When the stems of Catmint are broken, they release an aroma
into the air that will delight your cat, similarly to catnip. This is a great medicinal
plant that can be used in teas as a mild sedative and digestive aid for humans, too.
Spent flowers should be sheared off to promote blooming - cut back by 2/3 in July to promote reblooming in August to end of Summer. Nepeta thrives in hot, sunny and dry locations. It is one of the best plants to edge or under plant a rose bed. Cut back to the ground at the end of winter.
