This unique blend combines the refreshing qualities of spearmint (Mentha spicata) with the enticing charm of catnip (Nepeta cataria), creating a plant that is both a culinary herb and a treat for your feline friends. Whether you're an avid gardener, a culinary enthusiast, or a cat lover, these seeds are the perfect addition to your garden. Here's why our Spearmint Mint Edible Catnip Plant Seeds are a fantastic choice:

Key Features:

  • Dual Purpose: Enjoy the benefits of both spearmint and catnip in one plant. Use spearmint leaves for culinary purposes and let your cats indulge in the catnip's aromatic appeal.
  • Refreshing Flavor: Spearmint offers a cool, sweet flavor that is perfect for teas, desserts, salads, and garnishes, adding a fresh touch to your dishes.
  • Cat-Friendly: Catnip is known to stimulate playful behavior in cats, providing them with a natural and safe source of enjoyment.

  • Aromatic Appeal: Both spearmint and catnip produce a delightful fragrance that can enhance the ambiance of your garden or home.

Planting Instructions:

  1. Seed Preparation: Spearmint and catnip seeds do not require special preparation. For best results, sow seeds in early spring after the last frost or start them indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date.

  2. Soil Preparation: Choose well-draining soil rich in organic matter. Both plants prefer a slightly acidic to neutral pH (6.0-7.0).

  3. Sowing: Sow seeds about 1/4 inch deep in pots or directly in the garden. Lightly cover with soil and water gently to keep the soil moist but not waterlogged.

  4. Germination: Place the seed trays or pots in a sunny location where they receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight daily. Maintain a consistent temperature of 65-75°F (18-24°C). Germination typically occurs within 10-15 days.

  5. Transplanting Seedlings: Once seedlings have developed several sets of true leaves and are large enough to handle, transplant them into the garden or larger containers, spacing them 12-18 inches apart.

Growing Conditions:

  1. Light: Spearmint and catnip thrive in full sun but can tolerate partial shade. Ensure they receive at least 6 hours of sunlight daily for optimal growth.

  2. Soil: Use well-draining, fertile soil. Amending the soil with compost can improve fertility and drainage.

  3. Watering: Keep the soil consistently moist, especially during dry periods. Water regularly but avoid waterlogging, which can lead to root rot.

  4. Fertilizing: Feed the plants with a balanced fertilizer or compost once in early spring to support vigorous growth throughout the growing season.

Care Tips:

  • Pruning: Regularly trim the plants to encourage bushy growth and prevent them from becoming leggy. Harvest spearmint leaves as needed for culinary use and trim catnip to maintain a tidy appearance.
  • Pest Control: Monitor for common pests such as aphids and spider mites. Use organic insecticidal soap or neem oil if necessary.
  • Container Growing: Both plants can spread aggressively, so consider growing them in containers to control their growth and prevent them from overtaking your garden.
