Buy Nepeta × faassenii Junior Walker ('Novanepjun') (PBR) catmint: Low-growing and long-flowering

This perennial dies back to below ground level each year in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again in spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: June to September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    When in bloom throughout the summer, the flowers of this sterile catmint will be buzzing with bees. A compact grower with aromatic foliage (that cats will love), it will look great lining the edges of a path where you can enjoy the scent each time you brush past. It will also work really well in a pot.

  • Garden care: Cut back after the initial flowers have faded to encourage more to form. Lift and divide large clumps in spring, replanting divided specimens with lots of well-rotted organic matter. If powdery mildew becomes a problem prune out the affected areas.

My favourite Nepeta!


I absolutely love this plant - hardly needs cutting back in the summer as it just keeps on flowering but it is neater if cut back after the first flush (if you can work out when that finishes and the next begins) and bounces back very quickly with more flowers. Great for border edges and gorgeous colour, scent, everything!




Excellent Variety


Superior variety, compact and and covered in flower for weeks in summer.



IWould buy this plaint again


My cats love this plant and it stands up to being rolled in




Healthy and vigorous


A very attractive plant that virtually looked after itself. Easy to grow and loved by bees.




Good quality plants


Nepeta Junior walker is ideal for the front of a border as the don't grow too high. I have roses growing behind, which provides a lovely backdrop. The plants have died right back over winter, as expected, so I am hoping that they come again in the spring.


South Devon


Good sized plant quickly established in garden


Quickly established and started growing away like mad. Made a really substantial plant by summer, covered in bees, GREAT.




Better than expected


Plant looks lovely and healthy. Never grown jasmine before so here's hoping. Delivery very quick as well.

Planting companions for roses

Early flowering roses tend to come in shades of white, pink or purple-pink and most forms of the biennial foxglove, Digitalis purpurea, have toning flowers in similar colours. These appear in rose time, but carry on after the first rose flush has finished
