Catmint

Not Kitten Around: Pruning Catmint

Mon, March 02, 2020
While passing the catmint, I can see it’s time for a haircut. They’re looking rather winter haggard wearing a grayish-brown coat from last years fall line. Nepeta x faassenii, better known as a Catmint, is one of my favorites groundcovers. You can cut this cat back anytime of the year, as hard as you want and as often as you want.
