Catnip is a type of mint that grows into an attractive plant, growing as tall as 36 in. (90 cm) with bluish flowers in mid-summer. You can begin harvesting catnip when it’s about 12 in. (30 cm) tall and continue all summer. Try drying catnip to fill your cat’s toys as a special treat.
Growing Tips for Homeowners:
Water as needed all season to keep soil evenly moist, keeping your eye out for the first sign of wilt. Wilting is a sure sign that your catnip needs water. Feed with a vegetable fertilizer to ensure your bountiful harvest.
