? Nepeta Cataria
? When growing catnip from seed, you’ll need to properly prepare the seeds.
? Catnip seeds are tough and need to be stratified or slightly damaged before they will sprout.
? After you have stratified the seeds, you can plant them indoors or outdoors.
This can be done by first placing the seeds in the freezer overnight and then
placing the seeds in a bowl of water for 24 hours.
Theprocess will damage the seed coat and will make it much easier for the catnip seeds to sprout.
Thin them to one plant per 20 inches after the sprout.
? Famous for inducing a delirious, stimulated state in felines.
? This herb was used throughout history to provide a sedative effect. Before tea in England, Catnip tea was the regular beverage. Several other conditions including cancer, corns, toothaches, hives, and digestive aid have been treated with Catnip by traditional herbalists.
