Catnip loves the full sun, and although it can, and does, survive in partial shade and poor soil, it is best grown in normal soil that is well-drained. The plant's size depends on soil moisture, and fertility levels greatly influence plant size. The catnip plant is also fairly drought tolerant.  If you plan on showcasing it in your decorative landscaping, pinch the catnip plants as they grow to develop a thicker, fuller, and more attractive plant.
