This plant is extremely easy to grow. It requires full sun to partial shade and average, well-draining soil. Catmint does require lots of space to grow and are aggressive growers, crowding out other plants if given the chance. Therefore, surround it with a border edging or use containers (bottomless if in garden).
Catmint is usually grown from seed and sown in the garden during spring, spaced 12" apart. While size varies with variety, it can reach between 1-4 feet high with a 1-3 foot spread.
