How to Care for Nepeta Junior Walker

Before you buy a Junior Walker Catmint Plant, be sure to read the recommended care instructions to keep this plant healthy and thriving for years to come!

How Much Sun Does My Junior Walker Catmint Need?

How Much Sun Does My Junior Walker Catmint Need?

Junior Walker Catmint plants prefer to be in full to partial sun areas of your garden or landscape. They can also handle part shade in areas that tend to get hot in the summer. We recommend that you provide morning sunshine for your plant to absorb, but once the afternoon comes, your plant should receive light shade for a few hours to avoid any drying of your plant's soil or burning of its foliage and flowers. However, if you live in a cooler growing zone, you will most likely be able to keep your plant in the sunshine for the majority of the day without any worries.

The soil conditions that your Junior Walker Catmint plant thrives in the most are average, dry to medium, well-draining soils. We recommend keeping your plant on a regular watering schedule to ensure it does not dry out. Your plant will not do well if it does not receive enough water and its soil dries out. We recommend watering your plant once a week to keep its soil consistently moist. However, if you live in extreme heat or if your plant is in a container, you should water more frequently. A potted Nepeta Junior Walker plant will dry out quicker than one in the ground, so it needs to be watered more frequently. It is crucial to keep your plant's soil conditions moist but not too wet. Well-draining soil is vital because that will help avoid any chance of root rot disease.

How do I fertilize Junior Walker Catmint?

We recommend feeding your Junior Walker Catmint in the very early spring and again in mid-summer after all new growth has hardened off and flower buds begin to set. Espoma Flower-tone at the recommended rate will give the plant a boost of nitrogen potash that will be needed for healthy foliage and stem growth. Espoma products are easy to use; sprinkle around the base of the plant and water it in. Be careful with products such as Miracle Grow, as these products can burn newly planted plants when not used at the recommended rates.
