Catnip

250 Seeds

$ 3.69

(Nepeta cataria) Although best known as an alluring botanical for cats, catnip is a versatile herb with a variety of uses.  Over past centuries, catnip has reportedly been used as a cough suppressant, bronchodilator, anti-diarrheal, and anti-colic remedy in humans and is widely used today as both a mosquito and fly repellant.  Plants grow 3-4' tall, producing light green, toothed leaves with a minty scent and terminal flower spikes that are adorned by delicate white and lavender blooms.  Flowers are very attractive to bees.  In fact, our honeybees spend all day visiting the blooms, which last from mid-summer to fall.  Perennial in zones 3-9.  250 seeds per packet.

CULTURE: Sow seeds indoors 4-6 weeks before average last frost.  Surface sow seeds and cover very lightly with fine potting mix. Transplant outdoors after danger of frost has passed, spacing plants 12-18" apart.  Can also be direct-sown outdoors two weeks after last frost.  Prefers full sun to part shade.
