This is a wonderful border plant that works combines well with plants such as Salvia and Echinacea. Catnip grows to 30-50 cm and needs a fairly sunny spot to thrive and produce lots of the elegant violet-blue flowers that insects find so attractive. The flowering season runs from June until October. Once established the plant can be pruned back after flowering to keep it compact. Propagation: mature clumps can be lifted divided in the spring.
Perennials are plants that live for more than 2 years, generally flowering annually and dying back during the winter. Our range has been specially selected to help you create colourful displays in your garden which will attract and benefit insects such as butterflies and bees. Choosing a variety of plants that flower at different times will help to ensure your garden looks beautiful and sustains the wildlife across the seasons.
Our plants may be delivered in an infant or dormant state but once exposed to sunlight, they will resume growing. We also recommend using a fertiliser or soil conditioner when repotting or relocating into the garden to help them establish quickly.
