Answer: If you shear your catmint after it has finished blooming it should respond with a second flush of blooms. Depending upon how large your plant is, you can use scissors to cut it back or larger hedge trimmers if you have a lot of plant to deadhead. Cut just below the faded flower spikes (along with some of the non-flowering stems). Your plant will branch out where it was cut and will send up new flowers.
