Catmint (Nepeta mussinii) - 250 Seeds
Catmint grows best in sunny areas and will add a splash of color to any landscape or garden. Its gray-green foliage provides the perfect backdrop for the bright purple flowers that bloom during the summer months. Not only will your garden be made more beautiful with Catmint’s presence, but it’s also less attractive to felines than other varieties such as catnip, so you won’t have to worry about being disturbed during summer evenings.
So whether you’re looking for an eye-catching plant that has been around for centuries or need some natural insect repellent, Catmint is a great choice! Gardeners looking to beautify their landscapes should definitely choose this lovely heirloom perennial to add a bit of historical charm while giving their gardens an instant pop of color!

Catmint seeds need light to germinate, so avoid covering them when planting. It grows best in well-drained soils, preferably dry to medium, and in full sun to partial shade. This plant is drought-tolerant and prefers soils with a pH of 6.6. You can start seeds indoors in a sunny window six weeks before transplanting to the garden after the last frost. Or sow them directly into the garden after the last frost if your area has a longer growing season. Thin or transplant seedlings to 12 inches apart when they reach two inches tall. Keep plants full by pinching stems and flower buds when they appear. Be cautious while transplanting outside, as bruising the leaves will release oils that attract cats. Water only when the soil is dry. Cut Catmint back to the ground in spring for better growth and appearance.
