Description

Velvety, acid-green trumpet flowers that mix with any colour. One of my absolute cutting garden staples.

This tends to get mildew in my garden, so keep it well watered, or to be extra safe, consider a douse of Copper Mixture.

Nicotiana are a great family of very long-flowering half-hardy annuals, many of them with lovely evening and night scent. Nicotiana are moth-pollinated, so pour out the fragrance when the moths are around.

Please note: This is harmful if eaten.

Care Tips

Picking the flowers will encourage lateral growth and prolong flowering. Keep well-watered to help avoid any fungal diseases.
