"I grew catnip (not cat grass, but the actual cat nip herb) in my last AG herb garden and it grew up very nicely. I have to keep my AGs in the closet away from my kitty, Xena, but every day when I would open the closet door to check on my AGs, she'd be right there, so she'd get 2-3 leaves of catnip, right from the plant. She absolutely *loved* it." - peznin
