Offical Name: Nepeta cataria

General Description: 

Catnip, known scientifically as Nepeta cataria, is a member of the Lamiaceae, or mint family. Originating from Asia, Africa and Europe, it is now found all over the world and grows as a weed. Catnip is also used as an ornamental plant in many gardens because it is drought tolerant, deer resistant, and repels many insects. Interestingly, in addition to appealing to cats, its essential oil nepetalactone also attracts butterflies.

How to Grow:

Step 1 : Plant seeds directly in the garden in spring. Catnip seeds can be sown outdoors only during the spring. Bury seeds 1/8 of an inch (3.2 mm) beneath the soil and space them at least 15 inches (38.1 cm) apart.

  • Water them well during their germination period, which lasts up to ten days.
  • You should begin to see sprouts after this period.

Step 2 : Allow soil to dry out between watering. Catnip plants like drier soil, and root rot can set in if the soil is too moist. When you water, thoroughly soak the soil to saturate the roots. Let the soil dry out completely, and test it out by touching a finger to it before watering.

Step 3 : Shear and deadhead plants to promote new growth. After your plant's first flower blooms finish, remove the spent flowers. Shear back the plants by one-third to promote new growth and a new bloom of flowers. Remove any dead or dried leaves regularly.

  • Shearing and deadheading plants will result in bushier plants that flower more consistently.

Step 4 : Keep your kitty from damaging it or nearby plants. Cats are of course attracted to catnip plants, and love to nip at their leaves and lay in plant beds. If you have an outdoor cat, don’t plant catnip next to delicate flowers or plants you wouldn’t want your cat to damage. If using containers, avoid positioning pots in places where they might easily be knocked over or broken.

  • Consider using garden fencing, bracing, or bamboo sticks to support the plants and prevent your cat from laying on them.

Benefits: 

To make catnip tea, mix 2 teaspoons of dried catnip leaves or flowers with 1 cup of boiling water. Add lemon juice and honey, stir, and let cool for several minutes. Catnip tea is most commonly used to treat nervousness and anxiety, along with other symptoms these conditions can cause, such as indigestion and insomnia. Catnip tea’s biggest health benefit is the calming effect that it can have on the body. Catnip contains nepetalactone. This can improve relaxation which may boost mood and reduce anxiety, restlessness, and nervousness.
