Tobacco Plant (Nicotiana Sylvestris) 2000 seeds (#1043)

A statuesque tender perennial with large leaves and tower flower stems lined with drooping, long white tubular blossoms that are lovingly fragrant, the woodland flowering tobacco is one of the most elegant plants for a cottage or evening garden. This tender perennial that readily self-sows is native to Argentina; it is a very short-lived perennial that is usually best cultured as an annual regardless of climate.
The large, oval leaves form a basal clump and have an attractive coarse texture. In the warmth of summer, tall flower stems jet upwards from the foliage and bear a whorled cluster of fragrant white flowers. Each bloom is a slender tube with five lobes and arch downward, attracting the nectar-seeking moth for pollination in the evenings. In full sun the flowers usually close, opening later in the day and releasing most intense fragrances at dusk. Seeds are dropped nearby and sprout in the spring, perpetuating the presence of this species in the garden.
Grow woodland flowering tobacco in full sun to light shade situations in a moist, fertile but well-draining soil. Amend clay and highly alkaline soils with organic matter. It will recover as a perennial from mildly subfreezing winter temperatures (only USDA Zone 9). Use this majestic showstopper as an annual in the cottage or mixed border gardens for both visual texture and floral fragrance. Several whorls of flower clusters can occur on each stem, but cut away stems when all flowers cease so new stems will grow and later bloom. In tropical regions do not grow during the humid rainy season.

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
Sow indoors from February to April. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds.
Sow thinly on the surface of a tray of pre-watered compost. Place in a warm, light position. A temperature of +15-+20C 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 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, 30 cm apart, into well-drained soil, when frosts are over.
