Idea Exchange: Clients are crazy about catnip
Jan 01, 2011
OPERATION CATNIP Fresh organic catnip/Suggested donation: $0.25 per stem 100% of your donation will go to the medical care of homeless kitties
Client response has been phenomenal. Many people leave several dollars for a stem—even clients who don't have cats!If you decide to plant catnip, make a chicken-wire enclosure for the first year to protect the young plant from neighborhood cats. After the catnip plant is established, it will grow like a weed. You can harvest stems from spring through fall and dry leaves for winter.
