Catmint Seeds

Catmint Seeds

Lovelier Than Catnip

This aromatic, flowering landscape herb grows in mounds of soft gray-green leaves covered with a haze of shimmering lavender-blue flowers. Easy to grow, catmint makes a beautiful spreading ground cover that blooms for weeks on end. Plant it under roses, in an herb garden, at the front of perennials or to cover bare corners of the garden with a soft wave of color. Many house cats adore its fragrance as much as its less attractive relative, catnip.

Planting & Care

Planting: To Start Indoors: In spring, 6 weeks before the last expected frost, sow seeds 1" apart in a container of seed starting mix. Cover lightly, keep warm and moist, and provide a strong light source until seedlings are ready to plant out. Feed every 2 weeks with a half-strength fertilizer. Once seedlings are well-established, transplant 2 - 3" apart into deeper containers so root systems have room to develop. When 3 - 4" tall, acclimate to outdoor conditions and plant in full sun 12" apart. To Start Outdoors: Plant in full sun in ordinary garden soil in spring when weather is settled and night temperatures are in the 50s. Sow seeds in well-worked soil 1/4" deep and 4" apart. Keep evenly moist while waiting for seedlings to emerge. Thin seedlings to 12" apart.

Growing: Catmint grows into rounded 12 - 18" mounds that spread as wide as plants are tall. Once first flush of flowers ends, cut back to about 6" and plants will quickly come back into bloom. Many cats enjoy frolicking around Catmint's pungent branches and plants are sturdy enough to handle their affectionate advances. Plant drifts of this pretty herbal ground cover in any sunny spot.
