Catnip - Array - Nepeta cataria

Hardy Perennial Catnip is a member of the mint family. It spreads rapidly and produces lavender flowers. The lemon-mint flavor and fragrance of its leaves make a relaxing tea for humans. Of course, cats love it, too! Using catnip as a companion plant can help deter many pests, including flea beetles.

Soil & Water: Seed directly in late spring after the last frost, or start indoors. You may want to grow it in containers to prevent it from becoming a renegade in the garden. Catnip prefers moderate water, but is drought tolerant once established.

Planting & Growing: The average germination rate for catnip seed is only 40%. Once established, the plant will send out runners and spread rapidly.

Harvesting & Storage: Gather the flowering tops in late summer and dry in the shade. Store away from moisture.

Did You Know? Catnip tea has been used as an herbal remedy for colds, influenza and fevers.
