Description Sowing More Info Delivery Reviews
A 'must-have' border plant, especially when you want to fill a space quickly. Elegant upright flower stems tower above large basal rosettes of leaves, bearing petite flowers that fade from red to pink to white, giving the effect of three colours on each plant. The evening fragrance of British bred Nicotiana 'Whisper Mixed' only adds to its irresistible charm. An elegant annual that is most effective when planted in large drifts throughout beds and borders. Height: 100cm (39"). Spread: 45cm (18").


1 Packet (70 Seeds) (25728)

Sow Nicotiana from February to April on the surface of a good seed compost and gently firm down. Do not cover the seed. Place the seed tray in a propagator at a temperature of 20-25C (68-77F) or seal it inside a polythene bag. Keep the soil damp but not wet. Do not exclude light as this aids germination which usually takes 14-21 days.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into 7.5cm (3") pots and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors. When verbena plants are well grown and all risk of frost has passed, acclimatise them to outdoor conditions over 7 to 10 days. Transplant outdoors in full sun or semi-shade on moist, fertile, well drained soil at a distance of 30cm (12") apart.

Feed and water nicotiana plants regularly throughout the growing season. Caution: All parts of nicotiana are harmful if eaten. Contact with the foliage of tobacco plants may irritate the skin and eyes.
