Catmint (Nepeta Nervosa) - Your cats will love you if you start Catmint seeds in your garden! They will nip at the leaves, roll in the plant and maybe even take a nap in it! Nepeta Nervosa Catmint is an early blooming and mounding Catmint variety that forms beautiful large, pink spikes that are fragrant and will attract hummingbirds, butterflies and bees. Catmint plants make a beautiful display in any flower garden, and it works well in containers on your patio as well. Nepeta Catmint is compact, heat tolerant and a member of the mint family with aromatic leaves. Catmint perennial will bloom the first year if the flower seeds are sown early in the growing season. Catmint flower seeds produce a great general ground cover, accent plant, pathway edger, or rock garden specimen.
Establishing this ground cover from Catmint flower seed is not a challenge due to the fact that Catmint plants are not particular about soil, tolerating a wide range of texture and pH. Nepeta Catmint does, however, need good drainage and without it will develop crown rot. Shearing the Catmint plant after the first bloom will encourage a second and possibly third bloom.
After the danger of frost has passed, in a prepared seedbed that is in full sun to partial shade, sow the Nepeta Nervosa seeds directly outdoors. Press the Catmint seeds into the soil but do not cover them, and keep the flower seeds moist until germination. Thin the seedlings to 12 inches apart and pinch off the growing tips to promote a bushy growth habit. Catmint plants are aggressive and don't need much care, but an application of fertilizer 1 - 2 times during the growing season is beneficial. Give Nepeta plants lots of space as they will spread. Many gardeners will border them with an edging. Well-established Catmint plants can be divided in the spring.
