Planting & Harvesting

Sow & Grow

Sow indoors, February-April. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow thinly on the surface of a small tray of pre-watered compost. Place in a warm, light position. A temperature of 15-20°C (60-68°F) is ideal. Keep the compost moist. The tray can be covered with clingfilm to preserve humidity, but remove when seedlings appear, usually in 14-28 days. Transplant them, 5cm (2") apart, to other trays when large enough to handle. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out, May-June, 30cm (12") apart, into well-drained soil, when frosts are over. Flowers: June to October.

Hint's & Tips

The seed of Nicotiana is very small. For easier sowing, mix with a little dry sand.
