In addition to being a treat for most cats, catnip attracts beneficial insects to your garden including honey bees, butterflies and other pollinators. It is reported to be a mosquito repellent if you crush the leaves and rub them on your skin. 

{special note}
Tiny catnip seeds will arrive still tucked in their flower bracts and contain a strong catnip scent. Keep this seed packet out of reach of curious cats. In order for these seeds to germinate more quickly seeds should be removed from the bracts by crumbling them between your fingers to allow the seeds to fall free of the bracts.
