Tobacco


Notes: Germination is 14 -21 days Full Sun and well-drained soil. Spectacular display of flowers. A classic variety used in cigarettes, pipe blends and sometimes cigars and wraps. This variety is a very sturdy plant with medium to large upright leaves that ripen evenly to a golden yellow. Produces loads of bright yellow flowers on naturally insect-repelling plants Remove flowers if leave growth size is desired. For home use only.


Instructions: Surface Sow. Like many plants in the Nicotiana family, these seeds need light to germinate. The rule of thumb for sowing seed is the smaller the seed the closer to God. And Nicotiana is even smaller than a poppy seed so if it gets buried too deep in the soil it will not germinate. Press soil down flat first, then add the seeds. Like all seeds, keep moist.


Habitat: Full Sun

Sunflower - Astoundingly large seed heads characterize this variety. Truly mammoth flower heads that produce a wealth of  seed. Use as a natural bird feeder or harvest the seeds yourself for roasting. Stake plants in windy locations as they are top heavy once in flower.  Enjoys full sun and ample water for an abundant crop.   Nasturtium - Nasturtium is extensively used in organic pest control. They are beneficial in attracting aphids away from other prize plants as well as attracting beneficial hoverflies that eat them. Easily grown in any soil and blooms for long periods. Nasturtiums require little water and no fertilizer, as enriched soil tends to produce more foliage than flowers.  Use the brilliant colours of the flower petals and spice of the leaves as a garnish or to add the finishing touch to your garden fresh salads. Sweetly scented edible flowers and spicily scented foliage attracts hummingbirds.   Datura - Deer resistant, vividly coloured, trumpet-shaped flowers are followed by spiky ornamental seedpods, which are long-lasting and suited for cut arrangements. Do not eat the seeds or any other part of this plant. May be poisonous. Not attractive to animals. Self-sows making it a great choice for easy care gardens. The unique seed heads of Datura are often saved and used in crafts.
