Catnip is easy to grow if you can get it established before a cat discovers and destroys it. This advice from days past does seem to work-
If you sow it, the cats won't know it.
I'm sowing catnip seeds today, and we'll just see how long it takes the cats to discover it. Hopefully, I'll be able to harvest enough for a pot of tea, and perhaps a catnip mouse or two, before they pounce on it! (I do have dried catnip in the herb pantry, just in case the cats beat me to it!)
Catnip tea anyone?
