Cut back after flowering to encourage a second show of flowers.
How to care for Catmint
Catmint likes to be in a sunny or partial spot.
Catmint is very easy to care for. Trim back in the late winter to encourage fresh growth next year.
Water regularly when newly planted but don't allow roots to get soggy.
Plant with a good quality, peat free compost. No further nurtrients are needed.
Ensure soil is well drained. Adding grit to your compost when planting will encourage better drainage.

Catmint (Nepeta racemosa 'Walker's Low')
In this Soto Masterclass we introduce the Catmint, otherwise known as Nepeta racemosa 'Walker's Low'.
Max highlights why the catmint is a superstar in the Soto edit: it has a long flowering season, has a beautiful scent and is loved by pollinators.
The Catmint thrives in the sun but can tolerate being in the partial shade. Max demonstrates how to cut the plant back after it has flowered to encourage a second flush and he suggests using a liquid feed after this has been done.
