    Description Briscoe's Tips Use Them!

    Nepeta cataria

    If your cat was into herb gardening, Catnip would be on his list of 'must have' herb plants.

    Catnip is a vigorous, high yielding plant that your kitty will love! Tolerant of drought and less than ideal soil, it produces purplish-white flowers. Catnip loves full sun and the leaves and flowers of this perennial can also be used as a medicinal herb, as a gentle antispasmodic and very mild sedative.

    Catnip contains an active ingredient called Nepetalactone which affects between ten and thirty percent of most cats' olfactory senses. Giving the cat a psycho-sexual high, Catnip is non toxic and typical behavior may include licking, rolling, drooling and chasing. Reactions to this herb may vary in cats as this is a hereditary behavior and may also have no influence on senior or very young cats.

    Also a very potent mosquito and pest repelling herb, Catnip has a variety of wonderful uses from companion planting to even acting as an effective meat tenderizer! The Nepetalactone in Catnip has also been proven by The American Chemical Society to be ten times more effective than the commercial chemical, DEET, in repelling mosquitoes. Read Briscoe's Tips for more information on growing and using this wonderful herb plant.

    Your Cats Will Flip For Our 'Nip!
    Zones: Perennial in zones 3-9

    Size: 48"H x 18"S

    Light: Full sun

    Bloom: White, blooms mid to late Summer

    Uses: The best known of all kitty plants, catnip is easy to grow and tolerant to drought. Catnip pleasantly stimulates your cat's pheromone receptors, resulting in temporary euphoria. In addition to pleasing your cats, catnip can also be used by humans as a mild sedative. It makes a warm, minty tea that is used to induce sleep and said to relieve cold symptoms.

    Tips: Catnip can be a very invasive plant in the garden. To keep it from overrunning your other plants, try growing it in a container or in a five gallon bucket which can be buried outdoors.
