Catnip

NZ $2.95

Description

Well known for the way its leaves and blossoms, either dried or fresh, are relished by cats. The intoxicating effect is reserved only for felines, but a tea made from the leaves has long been used by humans. If the plant is pinched back as soon as the first flowers appear, many harvests of leaves can be obtained.

Maturity 75 days from transplant.
