How to Care for Nepeta Walkers Low Catmint

Before you buy a Nepeta Walker Low Catmint Plant, make sure to read about the recommended care instructions to keep this plant healthy and thriving.

How do I plant a Catmint Plant?

How do I plant a Catmint Plant?

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. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. 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.

How do I water Nepeta Walkers Low?

How do I water Nepeta Walkers Low?

After back filling and lightly compacting the 50/50 mix of existing soil and compost give the Nepeta Walker's Low a good deep watering. This is not to be rushed. Most of the water you put on the plant at first will run away from the plant until the soil is soaked. A general rule of thumb is to count to 5 for every one gallon of pot size. For example a one gallon pot would be watered until you count to 5 a three gallon pot would be 15 and so on. Check the plant daily for the first week or so and then every other day there after. Water using the counting method for the first few weeks.

How do I fertilize Nepeta Walkers Low?

How do I fertilize Nepeta Walkers Low?

We recommend feeding your Nepeta Walker's Low in the very early spring and again in mid summer after all new growth has hardened off and it begins to set flower buds. 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, just 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.

How do I mulch Nepeta Walkers Low?

How do I mulch Nepeta Walkers Low?

Mulching is an excellent and rather easy way to help provide essential nutrients to your plants, protect it from extreme temperatures, retain moisture, and also keep weed growth at bay. In drier climates, adding a layer of pine needles or nutrient-rich bark and leaves. If you live in an area that experiences more humidity, a layer of gravel can help to avoid excessive moisture from accumulating and promote drainage.
