Catnip Seeds

Attracts cats and bees; deters pests

You'll probably buy catnip for your feline friends, but end up liking it so much yourself it will become a permanent fixture in your garden. Catnip (also called catmint or true catnip) is a tall, coarse, perennial herb with gray-green leaves and soft lavender-blue blooms, both of which are fragrant and can be used to make a soothing tea. Vigorous and high yielding, catnip seeds can be planted inside or out; if outside it will spread in your beds or borders, thriving in poor, dry, sandy, or hot soils, blooming all summer and returning reliably for years.
