The spring or fall season is very suitable for the growth of Catnip. This plant is quite is easy to grow in both indoor and outdoor locales.
It is able to tolerate partial sun exposure and any sort of soil but manifests the best growth if it is rendered with full sun and well-drained soil. Catnip plants do not require any hustle of fertilizers as they are liable to curtail the much-awaited flavor and smell. Instead, they need plenty of water if they are being grown in drought conditions or pot.
For both containerized pot and garden beds, the seeds need to undergo stratification to break their dormancy. To do so, the tough seeds are frozen for a night then immersed in water for 24 hours. By doing so, the seed coat breaks, letting them sprout.
Catnip plant seeds take around 2 weeks to germinate. The germination is then followed by further growth of the plant. The flowers grow on the spikes, throwing good vibrations to all the pollinating insects.
After a favorable pollination process, fertilization comes around dancing like a diva. The flowers start showing brown spots that mark the era of seed saving for further propagation and continuation of the lifecycle of the catnip plant.
