Biennials live for 2 years, whereas perennials live for longer. As a general rule, biennial and perennial seeds should be sown in spring, but some can be sown in autumn as well. Many varieties will self-seed after flowering, giving you even more plants!
Nepeta cataria ssp. citrina
Lemon Catmint, Nepeta cataria 'Citriodora'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. Fashion conscious cats are taking it up in droves as the 'in' catmint to brush-up against. 'William' who's enthusiasm for catmint has not diminished since his last starring role amongst T&M's ordinary catmint 11 years ago, was persauded (on a full stomach) to pose against these lemons so that you would know about his new found catmint fragrance delight 'Lemon Scented Catmint'.
