It's time to show off your garden filled with American Meadows products!
When and Where to Plant: Select a full sun to partial shade location and sow seed after last frost. Catnip will grow in most soil types but prefers a sandy, well drained soil. Keep soil moist until the seeds germinate.
Care: Pinch plants often while they're growing, to obtain dense, well-shaped plants.
Harvesting: The herb is harvested just before flowering in middle to late summer on a dry sunny day and in late morning when all dew is gone. Drying should be done carefully. Cut off the whole plant at the base and hang it upside down as soon as possible in a dark, dry, well-ventilated place to minimize loss of volatile oil, or you can dry in an oven at 150 degrees Fahrenheit.

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
