Reintroduced following increasing interest by garden designers and visitors to our Open Days. Nicotiana Marshmallow is a very unusual and visually stunning variety which will add stature and fragrance to your summer borders. Above basal rossettes of large leaves, are formed masses of wiry stems are covered with a 'haze' of small blooms, each one fading through red, pink and white to give the effect of three flower colours on each plant.


1 Packet (100 Seeds) (26127)

Sow seeds from March to April into pots or trays of moist seed compost and cover with a fine sprinkling of vermiculite. Place in a propagator or seal container in a polythene bag and put in a warm place, and keep at a temperature of between 18-23C (65-75F). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination will usually take 7-21 days.

When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Gradually acclimatise plants to cooler conditions for a few weeks before planting out after all risk of frost, at 45-60cm (18-24in) apart.

For best results, provide a light, well-drained soil in full sun.

Caution: Irritant to skin and eyes. Harmful if eaten.
