Nepeta Purrsian Blue ground cover is undemanding and will perform well in almost any soil so long as it is well-drained. Do water them when they are first planted and getting established. They are happiest in full sun but will still perform well in partial shade. Nepeta is forgiving of rough treatment so in early Spring cut back the spent flower stems and foliage to retain a bushy shape and encourage growth. Divide congested clumps in late Autumn or early Spring.

As a rough guide when planting Nepeta Purrsian Blue as ground cover – 4 plants per square metre is adequate with a little patience, 6 will give better coverage, and 9-12 will make a weed supressing carpet very quickly.
