1000 Year Old Tabacco
Solanaceae (Nightshade Family)
North & South America
3 ft. Broad fuzzy leaves with yellow/green flowers on short spikes.
Tobacco needs all the sun you can give it, decent soil (the more fertile the better), and regular waterings to help it establish.
Tobacco seeds are very easy to germinate and the seedlings are fast growing. It is best started a month or so early (mid March to mid-April) in our temperate climate and then transplanted out when the night temps are warmer in mid-May.
Tobacco plants like regular water & feedings throughout the growing season.
