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).

Nicotiana alata (Syn. affinis) var. grandiflora

Type/Hardiness Annual, Hardy
Flowering period June-October
Height 30-36in/80cm-1m

Sowing time/depth Spring, Surface
The queen of flowering tobacco plants! Taller and more robust than more modern varieties, the tall stems bear masses of pendulous, star-shaped blooms, starting greenish white, fading to cream and then white. Their wonderful fragrance wafts through the garden in the evenings. Highly recommended.
Sowing and/or growing instructions
Sow in spring, on the surface of moist compost, covering with a dusting of compost or vermiculite. Prick out into individual pots or modules when large enough to handle. Acclimatise to outdoor conditions before moving to their final positions. Alternatively, sow direct in spring. Adequate watering will help reduce the possibility of mildew appearing on the foliage, but this has never been a problem for me.
