Description

This lovely plant is actually a species of wild tobacco known by the common names of "Woodland Tobacco" or "South American Tobacco". It is native to South America, and is often grown in gardens for its scented flowers, which can be quite overpowering at night, so as to attract pollinating moths. This is one of the plants from which the leaves can be dried and used for smoking although we do not recommend this practice

Sowing Advice

For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
