Grow Your Own Catnip
Our catnip (Nepeta cataria) seeds can be sown outside in early Spring.
Simply sow in shallow drills, cover with fine soil and water if dry.
Transplant the seedlings when large enough to handle.
Catnip prefers to be grown in a light soil in full sun.
Young plants must be protected as they may be damaged by inquisitive felines!
The plant can grow to 80cm in height and have a spread of 70cm
When picking the leaves, do so before the flowers open. Once dried, this herb may be used as a seasoning, to make a refreshing tea and of course, will drive most cats wild!
Our seeds have been produced and hand packed in England.
