Buy Nepeta racemosa 'Walker's Low' catnip: Deep violet to lilac-blue summer flowers and aromatic mid-green leaves.

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

    Deep violet to lilac-blue summer flowers and aromatic mid-green leaves. This violet-lilac catmint makes excellent, long-flowering groundcover for a sunny border. Clipped back after the first flush in June, it flowers through to early autumn. Useful as an informal, scented edge for paths as, when trodden on, the foliage releases a pleasant aroma.

  • Garden care: Lift and divide large clumps in spring, replanting divided specimens with lots of well-rotted organic matter.

Planted six of the 9cm pots last spring and they all bulked up in time for a great show last summer flowering for 5 months. All came back this season with no issue and appear to thrive on neglect in our London clay soil.

Of the 6 purchased, 5 are doing really well in their second year. Only one failed this year, but the others have flowered well and have matured nicely.

Gorgeous plant and attractive to bees which is why I bought it. I give mine the "chelsea chop" and it comes back again.




If appropriate would buy again

Brilliant Catnip


I had three very healthy plants delivered, very well packaged and delivered on time. First plant was devoured by my neighbours cat that had snuck into my living room. Other two are now kept on my kitchen window sill out of harm's way, I only use any dead leaves or stems for my cat. I have made him a catnip den out of a cardboard box and he often spends hours in there.




I would buy this again


Looks great in the borders




Very useful plant that looks good in the late summer months


Just like my garden to look good all year




Beautiful plant

I will buy this product again


Pleased with product which arrived safely, on time and in good condition. Sometimes it is better to, perhaps, pay a little bit more to get a healthy plant which matches the advert description.

Is this catnip the sort that attracts cats? If so is there a way to protect the plant?


Hello Some varieties cats prefer to others but in my experience any catmint they seem to like. It is hard to deter a cat when they have found a nepeta but you could try and protect it with other plants or a cloche.

Mediterranean gardens can take on various guises from the rustic and rambling to the formal elegance of an Italian courtyard. However, they all have key features in common, including the use of exotic, sometimes tender, drought-tolerant plants in pots and

These lovely plants produce a succession of lily-like flowers each of which lasts for just one day. At first, this seems rather disappointing, but they are such bright, exotic flowers and produced in such profusion that this isn't actually a drawback. In

The Chelsea Chop (and other methods of extending the flowering season)

Many gardeners who are happy, even gung-ho, with the secateurs when pruning shrubs and climbers are surprisingly reluctant to take the shears to herbaceous perennials. Maybe this is because it just doesn't seem quite right to be cutting back all that new
