In Season Guide: Catnip

Catnip is ready to harvest at full bloom when aromatic properties are at their peak.  Stems are cut a few inches above the crown to allow for plant regrowth.  Generally, plantings may be cut twice (mid-summer and fall) during the growing season.  Cutting can be accomplished by hand or with a side bar cutter mower.  Some growers gather the crop using a standard baler once stems have dried sufficiently.

Harvested plants are dried naturally in the shade or with an artificial dryer.  Further drying and processing may be required, depending on the buyer and use.
