Description How to Grow Delivery

A much-loved bedding plant for over a century, Nicotiana alata bears abundant trumpet-shaped white flowers all the way from June until the first frosts. These elegant blooms have a sweet perfume which intensifies in the evening, making tobacco plant a perfect choice for planting in pots or beds around patios and seating areas where the heady scent can be enjoyed to the full. Tobacco flowers are held in clusters on tall, robust stems and make a great cut flower, with picking prolonging the flowering season. This South American beauty is incredibly low maintenance and provides a valuable source of nectar for butterflies and night-flying moths. A must-have for any patio or cottage garden! Height: 90cm (25in). Spread: 30cm (12in).

Van Meuwen strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.
