Herb: Catnip Planting Instructions:
Plant seeds indoors 4 to 8 weeks before the last frost. Seeds should be planted 1" deep in a seed-starting formula. Keep the soil moist and at 70 F. After 2 to 3 weeks, seedlings should emerge. As soon as the seedlings come up, provide plenty of light for up to 16 hours a day. Seedlings do not need much fertilizer, but feed them with a starter solution when they are 3 to 4 weeks old. Before transplanting seedlings in the garden, harden them by moving them to a sheltered place outside for a week and bringing them in at night. Catnip seeds prefer full sun and should be planted 12" apart. Grow time is about 80 days.

Herb: Catnip Harvesting Instructions:
Leaves or whole stems should be harvested as soon as the plant is mature, before the leaves start to yellow. It is best to harvest the leaves in the morning, between the dew drying and the heat of the day. Cut stems off at the base of the plant. Strip leaves from stems and store in the refrigerator for a few days. The leaves can also be dried for long-term storage.
