Nepeta cataria ssp. citrina

Lemon Catmint, Nepeta cataria 'Citriodora'

Hardy Perennial

Quite unlike ordinary catmint, handle or squeeze the leaves and they give off a rich lemony fragrancy which pervades the garden with rich flowery perfume on still, warm summer evenings. It's easy to grow and can be treated as either annual or perennial making a good border or summer hedge plant.

Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Sow spring to autumn in good free draining seed compost, just covering the seed with compost. Germination usually takes 7-21 days at 16-20C (60-70P). The seed can also be sown in spring where it is to flower in a well raked moist seed bed.

When the seedlings are large enough to handle transplant into 7.5cm (3in) pots, grow cool and finally plant out 30cm (12in) apart into a sunny spot in free draining soil.

Overwinter autumn sown plants in a well ventilated cold-frame and plant out in spring.
