An impressive summer bedding for height and fragrance, Nicotiana sylvestris graces your border throughout summer with tall, upright stems, lush leaves and elegant white blooms which flaunt a hint of pink blush. The distinct, sweet scent of the Tobacco Plant is a highlight in mixed borders and fits in well with a cottage-garden style. Producing multiple blooms per stem, they look great grouped together in drifts or swathes. Height: 60-80cm (24-32in).

Sowing

Sow Nicotiana from February to April on the surface of a good seed compost and gently firm down. Do not cover the seed. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 20-25C (68-77F) or seal it inside a polythene bag. Keep the soil damp but not wet. Do not exclude light as this aids germination which usually takes 14-21 days.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3”) pots and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When verbena plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant outdoors in full sun or semi-shade on moist, fertile, well drained soil at a distance of 30cm (12”) apart.

More Info
Feed and water nicotiana plants regularly throughout the growing season. Caution: All parts of nicotiana are harmful if eaten. Contact with the foliage of tobacco plants may irritate the skin and eyes.
