Nepeta, Catnip


By Siris

Nepeta, Catnip (Nepeta transcaucasia)

Catnip grown from Simbad seed. Hope the local cats don't find it and go rolling in it, because it is still small

Was it Blue Infinity I sent? , think the seed packet said 20 inches mine are 4ft!
We used to have a lovely long haired black cat visitor that loved rolling in it as soon as it sprouted in spring lovely fella he was.

Yes it was Simbad, I must add the name to my records. Everyone found here seems to have outdoor cats except my immediate neighbours. We take it in turns to receive little deposits!

We did have quite a few cat visitors at one time but only seen my tabby friend recently, deaf as a post he is lol,can usually be found in one of the greenhouse asleep in a seed tray or his bed I put in for him, brilliant mouser one day he caught two while I was gardening he took them home thankfully.
