How to Grow Nepeta Walkers Low
2007 Perennial Plant of the Year 18-24" tall x 18" wide. Nepeta Walkers Low (named after a place in England, not its growth habit) is a stunning non-reseeding Catmint selection with attractive, crinkled blue-green foliage and a profusion of deep lavender-blue flowers. Cut back just above ground-level in mid-spring after the first flush of blooms. Shear off faded flowers in June to re-bloom. Nepeta Walker's Low thrives in harsh conditions.
We suggest when planting your newly purchased Nepeta Walker's Low plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Nepeta Walker's Low does prefer drier soils so if there was ever a plant that we would recommend not adding topsoil or compost this is one.
