PLEASE NOTE: Since plants are often sourced from the garden to order, sizes do vary a little, depending on how they come out of the ground, but I always endeavour to give a little more rather than less! They are sometimes shipped bare-rooted, but will approximate the size specified (e.g. a 9cm pot).

Sowing time/depth Spring,
Datura produces white, fragrant, trumpet-shaped flowers and light green foliage, but the most striking part of the plant is its large spiky seed pods. They make a very interesting addition to dried flower arrangements. Although originating from warmer countries, this plant has become widely naturalised in the UK. HIGHLY POISONOUS!!!

NOTE: Restricted to one packet only per customer.

Sowing and/or growing instructions
Very easy. Best sown thinly, direct, in sun or part shade. The pods contain many seeds, so remove them before they split open (which they do whilst still green) if you do not wish the plant to self seed.
