How to Use

  2. Prepare the soil by removing weeds and breaking up any clumps, then working in organic matter or compost to improve drainage and nutrients.
  3. Sow your catnip seeds indoors all year round or outdoors during spring, summer, and early autumn, following packet instructions for seed spacing and depth.
  4. Keep the soil consistently moist until germination occurs, which can be anywhere from 7 to 10 days after planting.
  5. After the seedlings are established and have grown several sets of true leaves, thin them to ensure there is adequate space for each plant to grow.
  6. Regularly water, fertilise, and prune your catnip plants to encourage healthy growth and branching.
  7. Harvest the leaves and flower buds once the plant reaches maturity, and let them dry for your cat to enjoy or for your own personal use as an herbal tea ingredient.
