Catnip is a hardy perennial plant that grows 3 to 4 feet tall. Use the small, heart-shaped leaves in fresh salads, and the purple flowers as a garnish. Keep plant sheared back to keep in check. Dried leaves can be used for an herbal tea or for your cat.
Harvest leaves and flowers late summer. Cut the stems a few inches from the soil after the plant begins to bloom. Place the stems on a screen in a cool, well-ventilated area to dry. This can take from a few days to several weeks depending on the moisture content of the herb. Test for dryness by crushing a leaf between your thumb and finger. It should have a crispy, crackly sound and feel. If in doubt about how dry it is, preheat oven to the lowest setting, turn off and put the herbs in the oven on a cookie sheet for 5 minutes or so. When dry, strip the flowers and leaves from the stems and crush. Store in an airtight container (away from your feline friends!)

In light of everything going on in the world we have implemented some changes to ensure your safety. Our hours will be looking a little different Monday through Friday; we will be having reserved hours for those who are members of the vulnerable population group. 8 am to 9 am will be the time frame set aside for your needs to shop. We are also taking steps to help provide a cleaner environment for you and your loved ones. We have scheduled an employee to come in each morning prior to us opening to clean the store. We also strongly encourage that when you're in the store please practice social distancing. You should be at least 6 ft from others. As of right now we are still not set up to provide services such as curbside assistance. We are trying to do what we can in light of everything going on in the world. We encourage you to practice the safety guidelines that have been ordered by our Governor and Health Department. We appreciate your continued support of our small businesses during these unforeseen difficult times.
