CATNIP SEEDS | PERENNIAL | catmints | NON-GMO | HERB | 500 seeds

**Catnip** (Nepeta cataria) is a herbaceous perennial that thrives in much of North America and is very easy to grow ¹. Here are some tips for growing catnip:

1. **Planting**: Catnip can be grown from seeds. Plant the seeds directly in the garden or in containers when the last frost has passed in your area. The ideal garden location for catnip will get lots of sunlight and have well-drained soil. Space catnip plants 18 to 24 inches apart in the garden. Position nursery plants and seedlings at the same depth they were in their previous container.

2. **Sunlight**: Catnip prefers full sun, meaning at least six hours of direct sunlight on most days. Too little light can cause leggy growth with sparse foliage. However, catnip does struggle in extreme heat. So if you live in a hot climate, give your catnip a little shade from the strong afternoon sun.

3. **Watering**: Water the plant frequently until it is established. Once established, catnip doesn't need much water to grow.

4. **Support**: Catnip is a small plant that doesn't require support to grow

5. **Fertilizing**: These plants aren’t fussy about their soil as long as they have good drainage. They can tolerate poor, rocky, and dry soils. A well-draining sandy or loamy soil is best with a slightly acidic to slightly alkaline soil pH (6.1 to 7.8)

6. **Harvesting**: Catnip leaves can be harvested when they are young and tender, usually around 20-30 days after planting.
