      Herb Description

      Herb gardening for the whole family - pets included! The soft, crinkled, gray-green leaves on this compact, mounding plant makes a great for containers and in a 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.
