Requires very little care. The plant is large enough in about one month after planting for first harvesting.
Gently trim off the tips of the plant leaving at least two pairs of true leaves to grow. There will be more growth soon!
If you want your Catnip to bloom - don't cut it! But feel free to cut it back after flowering, new green growth will appear soon.
The plant will flower in about 70 days after planting and this annual plant needs to be replaced after that.
