Productinformation

Flowering tobacco, nicotiana hybrid F1 Blue flower seeds

This variety of flowering tobacco is perfect for pots because it grows more compact. The blue to more lilac flowers are very large compared to other flowering tobacco varieties. To keep the plants tidy you can cut it back a few times and plants will start to reflower again. It is super resilient and easy to grow.

How to grow Nicotiana plants from seeds

It’s quite simple! We recommend starting the seeds a few weeks before the last frost in seed trays with a propagator. The propagator helps maintain the right moisture level in the soil, ensuring it’s neither too wet nor too dry. To make handling easier, we provide coated seeds since they are incredibly tiny. The coating is harmless and only adds a thin layer around the seeds. If you happen to have a spare heating mat, it can be used to speed up germination as Nicotiana prefers slightly warmer conditions for successful sprouting. Keep in mind that the seedlings are delicate and grow at a slow pace.

To start growing flowering tobacco or Nicotiana plants, begin by sowing the seeds in small cells. After a few weeks, it’s beneficial to repot them into larger containers. Providing fresh soil and additional space works wonders for their growth. Once the risk of frost has passed, you can safely transplant them into the desired outdoor location. From there, you can delight in their beautiful flowers, which will continue to bloom for many weeks!

Use as cut flower

Flowering tobacco is known to be a resilient cut flower, capable of lasting around 6 to 8 days. However, it’s worth noting that the stems of flowering tobacco can be slightly sticky. That makes them a bit difficult to arrange. But a few long stems give your bouquet that extra airy, wildflower effect.
