Catnip Plant
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I was pleasantly surprised when this plant arrived. The plant itself looked super stressed and the plant clearly looked like it died. I'd been happier if it came with some instructions on replanting and care.

    Didn’t last long
    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The catnip plant started in good condition but was a little hard for me to care for it. I followed all the instructions but the plant still wilted pretty quickly. It does require replanting and keeping it in certain conditions but I was not able to to keep it alive. It wilted pretty quickly and did not recover from that. The neighborhood cats did love it though!

      Very Nice
      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] The Catnip is just beautiful! When I received it earlier this month, I was amazed at just how well the packaging was. The plants arrived in perfect condition, and each plant was inside of a nice plastic container, keeping the plants fresh, and protected from any damage that might occur during shipping. The catnip plants I received were very healthy, vibrant, and still had plenty of moisture in the soil. After a week I transplanted the catnip plants, and within three weeks the plants have already doubled in size. My cats of course, love it when I bring a few leaves inside for them to enjoy.

        Growing!
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I’m so happy I got this! The package came neatly packed and intact, I was a little worried because I never ordered a live plant before. I haven’t transferred it to my garden yet but I plan to when it grows a bit more. My cat seems to have a interest it! It’s growing quite nicely so far.

          Arrived nice & fresh
          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I am not familiar with cat nip but heard it's great for tea. I have yet to dry any but I like how the Bonnie Plants arrive very nicely packaged and fresh. The plant is thriving well and I have transplanted in a bigger pot. Very happy with Bonnie plants!

            Dying already
            First my order was delayed being shipped out so they didn't arrive when anticipated. When I got them one looked kinda ok and the other was already sad. Got them in potting soil and outside in full sun right away and now both appear to have blight and are dying. I've only had them a few days. Very disappointing. I've tried pinching off the affected leaves to see if they'll come back but I'm not hopeful

              Starter plants
              These plants arrived safely and intact, but were not like the picture. They were tiny BABY plants! After planting them and caring for them for a monrh, they are flourishing and beautiful. No bugs or diseases. You will only be disappointed if your expecting mature plants. Otherwise, nice and healthy starters.

                                  Received plants in very poor condition. The soil was very dry and one of the plants was completely out of the pot. I tried to salvage one of them by transplanting, but it died last night. So I had a bad experience.

                                  They lasted almost 24 hours after I put them in the ground. "Mouche" (the cat) and I are both really bummed.

                                  Your cats will thank you
                                  [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My kitty went nuts once I received this container full of a catnip plant that had fully flourished. The leaves are green and vibrant, and once I repotted the plant, it got even larger than when I had received it. I think my cat thinks its probably the best present she's ever gotten. I would highly recommend if 1. you love your cats and 2. If you love plants in general. It's a very pretty plant.
