Catnip Growing Tips and Advice

Tea drinkers and cat lovers can cultivate their own catnip, which needs moist rich soil. Catnip prefers sun or partial shade, but if you grow your catnip in full sun, the plants will be sturdier and shorter.

Planting Catnip

Seeds should be sown 1/8 inch deep and covered with fine soil. Press your catnip seeds down. If you grow your seeds indoors, they should germinate in 10-20 days. If you grow them outdoors, you should plant your seeds in the fall for spring plants. When your catnip plants are about 2 inches tall, thin them. When you’re ready to harvest in the late summer, cut and dry the mature leafy tops and leaves. However, if you want a second harvest, cut the catnip plant back severely after the first flowering.

Days to Germinate: 10-20
