HOW TO GROW
CAT COLLECTION

Most of our locally sourced seeds can be planted in pots or sown directly into a garden bed. If planting in pots, use a premium quality potting mix. If planting in the garden, it's best to add some organic matter (compost) to the soil. Some seeds will need to be germinated in a seed tray or small pot before being transplanted to a more permanent home. See below for seed-specific instructions.

Cat Grass (Dactylis glomerata)

When to plant: Anytime  Where: Anywhere (in a container)  Planting depth: 0.5cm  Spacing: Dense planting is fine  How big will it get: 8cm
 Make sure that you plant in a container that can be moved easily and that Kitty can get to. The best time for Kitty to eat the grass is when it has grown to about 5-7cm, when its nice and young. Cat grass is great for Kitty's digestion and should be sown regularly to ensure there's a constant supply.

Cat Mint (Nepeta mussini syn. n. x faassenii)

When to plant: Spring  Where: Sunny but periods of shade are okay  Planting depth: 0.5ish cm  Spacing: 30cm  How big will it get: 30cm–90cm
Cat Mint has purple-blue flowers. It will give Kitty a buzz and make her feel gooood. It's completely harmless and non-addictive and can be used as a reward or to create hilarious YouTube videos. 

Catnip (Nepeta cataria)

When to plant: Spring  Where: Sunny or part shade  Planting Depth: 0.5cm  Spacing: 30cm apart  How big will it get: 30cm - 90cm
Catnip has white flowers and is similar to Cat Mint. It will give Kitty a buzz, and might even make her a little frisky. There are no adverse effects of Catnip, although male cats may become slightly aggressive when exposed to it if they still have all of their...•ahem•...bits.
