Nicotiana sylvestris

This is an intoxicatingly mellifluous flower. It is also toxic and no part of this plant can be smoked. It is not a smoking tobacco. 

Annual, Open-pollinated.

This is a South American heirloom prized for its intoxicating blooms. It is particularly heady in the early evening hours - I spend at least 20 minutes every evening taking the smell in. One of my favourite plants. 

100 seeds per pack. 

Days to maturity: 100-110

Seed starting:

Start seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost in your region. The seeds are tiny! Scatter them on top of a compacted moist soil, and water them carefully (I like to mist them heavily with a spray bottle).  The seed require light to germinate so don’t cover them up :).  This is a sun plant - loves the sun and warmth. Germination takes about 1 to 2 weeks. 

Transplant outside in a sunny spot once all danger of frost has passed.
