Description More Information
 
This self sowing annual is good host for beneficial insects and keeps mosquitoes at bay in our gardens. It makes a good insect repellent.

Catnip is a vigorous growing mint loved by cats. It is brewed into a tea to treat colds, headaches, flu, and fever. Tea also has a relaxing effect on children. Plants grow up to 36” tall. Grayish green leaves have a strong mint-like flavor and may be harvested 75 to 85 days after sowing.

Dried, it is used as a stimulant for cats as well as an excellent tea to help you sleep. Average: 80 days


Detailed planting instructions:

Plant catnip in a place where your cats can rub and roll in it without hurting adjacent plants. Some cats like catnip so much that they lie on it, roll on it, and chew it to the point of destruction. If you find that to be the case, place some 1- to 2-foot-long bamboo sticks or thin dowels every 2 to 3 inches within the canopy of the plant to make it impossible for a cat to lie on top of the plant.

Catnip grows as a loosely branching, low perennial. In a flowerbed, you can plant catnip in front of purple coneflower, which blooms about the same time. The plant bears tiny, white blooms that are not very showy. You can also grow it in containers.

For indoor cats, grow several pots outside to rotate to the indoors. Plants need a lot of light, so you’ll need to move them back out every couple of weeks and bring in a new one.

Also consider planting catnip in the vegetable garden as a way to attract your cat, who can help keep down rodents in the garden.


HARVESTING

Harvest leaves by cutting the stems anytime during the growing season. The foliage keeps its scent best when air dried.

SAVING SEEDS

Seeds are ready to harvest when the blooms begin to turn brown and dry. When the heads are completely dry, gently crush the heads between your hands and then carefully winnow away the chaff.

Non-GMO seeds, Well packaged, fresh March 15, 2014
Reviewer: Eadie Rowell from Zebulon, NC United States  
Great! Arrived as promised in a sealed packet inside a sealed aluminum , plastic lined zip lock envelope with planting instructions. Delivered promptly after placing order. My Patriot Supply has taken the Non GMO seed pledge and is on the online list of safe guaranteed non GMO seed providers. I give all their seeds a thumbs up. Couldn't ask for more. Before I bought I compared several other online seed companies for quantities and prices. My Patriot Supply beat them all hands down! I will never buy my seeds and survival supplies from any other company.
