poppysue, I've noticed you and I seem to be growing a lot of the same things (smile). On the Catnip, to collect seeds, do I need to wait until the flowers dry on the plant? Or can I collect them fresh and hang them to dry to get the seeds?

Cajun, I'd wait until at least a few of the flowers have turned brown. I'm not sure if they'll continue to ripen after they're cut. I cut most on the flowers off and only leave a few to collect seeds from. It re-seeds like wildfire if you let the whole plant go to seed.
