The Q&A Archives: How much shall I cut back for winter, if any?

Question: What shall I do to Cat Mint-Mepeta Fassemii Walkers Low for winter. Do I cut it all the way to the ground or part way or just what? Please help. I have to do something soon as I am leaving in a week or so for the winter!
Thanks, Miss MaeMae

Answer: Walker's Low cat mint should be sheared back several times a year - after each bloom period is finished. You can cut yours back now. Cut off any flower stems and prune your plants down by two-thirds.
