|Hey there! I grow my own kitty crack (aka: catnip), too!
I didn't buy a kit. I just bought the seeds and small 3x3inch plastic starter cups; gave the seeds some water about every other day and it grew like crazy! It is basically a naturally growing weed anyway.
In fact, of all the herbs I grow, kitty crack is by FAR the easiest and lowest maintenance to grow. I put it outside during the day for the sun and then bring it in and lock it up at night.
The PROBLEM I have is keeping the furbabies from finding & decimating the plants! Homegrown is MUCH more fragrant and regardless of where I hide it, they ALWAYS find it! A few years back, I lost a good set of plates & bowls because I thought they'd never find it if I put it on the top shelf of one of the cabinets...lol.
So. Instead of getting a kit, just buy the 1.50 bag of seeds, buy a few of the plastic, throw-away planters for small starter plants, and some dirt. No fertilizer necessary. Cheaper than a kit and you get WAY more kitty crack!
If you decide to grow it yourself, when and if you want to dry it to store some away for later, email me and I'll be happy to give you an easy way to dry it, too!
