Container grown Catmint Shrubs
Catmint (Nepeta x faassenii) also known as the catnip plant is a genus of flowering plants in the family Lamiaceae. This commonly grown shrub, or hedging plant, produces clusters of lavender-blue flowers amongst grey-green foliage. Catmint makes a great alternative to Lavender as it is more suited to the British weather.
Catmint can be grown in sun or partial shade with average, well-draining soil. They are even heat and drought tolerant, making them excellent plants for dry garden areas. Catmint blooms throughout summer and autumn, deadheading spent blooms promotes additional flowering. Deadheading flowers is very simple, as plants fade out of bloom, pinch or cut off the flower stem below the spent flower and just above the first set of full, healthy leaves. Repeat with all the dead flowers on the plant.Learn more about Container Grown Plants >
