Indoor Herb Collection Safe for Cats?
Answered by: Conrad Richter
Question from: Karen
Posted on: April 26, 2002

I’d like to order the indoor window herb collection, but I need to find out if any of these are toxic to cats. Also, are they seeds or seedlings? Is this collection also available at your shop? I’m just in Oshawa.

None of the herbs in the indoor collection are hazardous to cats as far as we know; they are all safe for human consumption. Generally, but not always, herbs that are safe for human consumption are safe for pet consumption also.

The wondowsill collection (S7530) is a seed collection. You get one packet each of Italian parsley, Spicy Globe basil, Fernleaf dill, Grolau chives, and Greek oregano. Yes, they are available at our greenhouse and herb shop. If you prefer a collection of herb plants, we have special packs planted with four different herbs for a very good price; these are available for personal shopping at Richters during April and May only until they sell out.
