Catnip Browning


Aprilb24 added on September 25, 2016 | Answered

My catnip has begun to brown and I'm not sure why. The leaves are not dried out or wilting, but do not appear to be the healthy lush green they once were. Any ideas on how I can help my plant out? Thanks!

This could be due do a few different issues.
Your plant may be over or under watered. Make sure the soil is moist but never soggy. Make sure your container has adequate drainage holes in the bottom and that they are draining.
Often a container that sits directly on ground may not drain freely. You can sit the container on a few bricks to raise it off the ground.
Nutritional issues in the soil could also cause the color changes in the leaves.
I like to give my Herbs Epsom Salt.
