The Nepeta plant, more popularly known as Catmint, is a favourite in traditional English cottage gardens.
It is a beautiful plant to grow for an informal, low maintenance garden, a wildlife garden (the bees and butterflies adore it), a rockery, or into pots and containers due to its blue/grey aromatic leaves and lavender blue flower spikes. The plant also has a low water requirement.

It is able to withstand harsh conditions, including drought, and is sturdy and resilient.
It is best grown in either full sun or partial shade and can be sown either in the spring or the autumn. Avoid overwatering or over feeding.
After the flowers have faded, prune the plants to maintain their compact shape and to stimulate additional blossoming.
