‘Walker’s Low’ Catmint Care

Planting: Choose a location with full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil for your ‘Walker’s Low’ Catmint. Ensure proper spacing to accommodate its mature size, typically around 18 to 24 inches in height and spread.

Watering: Water your ‘Walker’s Low’ Catmint regularly, especially during the first growing season to establish its roots. Once established, it is drought-tolerant and requires occasional watering during prolonged dry spells. Water at the base of the plant to avoid wetting the foliage, which can lead to disease.

Soil: ‘Walker’s Low’ Catmint prefers well-drained soil with average fertility. Amend heavy or clay soils with organic matter such as compost to improve drainage and soil structure.

Mulching: Apply a layer of organic mulch around the base of the plant to retain moisture, regulate soil temperature, and suppress weed growth. Keep the mulch a few inches away from the plant’s stems to prevent rot and disease.

Fertilizing: ‘Walker’s Low’ Catmint generally does not require fertilization. However, you can apply a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in spring if the soil is poor or the plant shows signs of nutrient deficiency.

Pruning: Deadhead spent flowers to encourage continuous blooming and remove faded foliage to maintain a tidy appearance. Cut back the entire plant to the ground in late fall or early spring to rejuvenate growth.

Protection: ‘Walker’s Low’ Catmint is generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, monitor for common issues such as aphids or powdery mildew, and treat promptly if necessary with insecticidal soap or fungicide.

Propagation: ‘Walker’s Low’ Catmint can be propagated by division in early spring or fall. Dig up the plant and separate the root clumps, replanting the divisions in well-prepared soil
