How to Plant and Grow Nepeta
Plant Nepeta Seeds: Sow seed in cell packs or flats, press into soil but do not cover. Light aids germination. Kept at 70° F., germination is in 14-45 days. Can direct sow (barely cover), in groups of 6-8 seeds spaced 12-18 in. apart. Thin to the strongest plant.
Grow Nepeta: Full or part sun, prefers afternoon shade in hot areas. Well-drained soil. Needs average to little water once established. Cut plants back by half after bloom, or cut flowering stems down to ground level. In spring, remove old growth to make room for new stems. Deer and rabbit resistant. Attract bees and butterflies.
