Planting a custom cat garden for your kitty will make all of the other neighborhood cats green with envy. But what type of greens will your cat enjoy? As you might guess, no cat garden can be complete without a planting of catnip or cat mint. But that’s just for starters.
Let your garden double as a salad bar by adding wheat grass or oat grass to the mix. Some experts recommend planting cat thyme, also in the mint family, as well as valerian. Valerian makes people sleepy, but cats can get a lift from it.
As your cat garden grows, consider rounding it out with kitty-safe ornamental plants—creeping rosemary, alyssum, and heather are popular choices.
