Catmints add a lovely, soft, floppy, gentle touch to cottage gardens, and this hazy, mauve-flowering form has characteristically nettle-like, grey-green foliage. It looks best in long drifts, for example, edging a bed of roses, or encircling a fountain. After the first burst of flowers, shear over the growth to get a second crop of leaves and flowers.

Height: 60 cm.

Flowers: jun-aug

Type: HP

Hardy in: zones 3-7 (-25 Celsius)

Sowing instructions: Sow spring to autumn. Sow in good free draining seed compost, just covering the seed with compost. Germination usually takes 7-21 days at 16-20 Celsius. The seed can also be sown in spring where it is to flower in a well raked moist seed bed.

Planting instructions: When the seedlings are large enough to handle transplant into 8cm pots, grow cool and finally plant out 30cm apart into a sunny spot in free draining soil. Overwinter autumn sown plants in a well ventilated coldframe and plant out in spring.
