One of the annuals I plant every year is Nicotiana Sylvestris. It is a flowering tobacco. You will know about the smaller nicotianas
that are sold in garden centres every spring. They come in pinks, reds, purples, and lime green.
But nicotiana sylvestris is white, fragrant, and much, much taller.
Each plant produces thousands of seeds, but believe me, you only need 5 or 6 of these plants.
They start out pretty small.
And they don’t seem to grow too fast in the beginning. If they don’t have enough space, other plants will soon crowd them out.
But once they shoot up, they really make quite a statement.
You’ll only have to buy the first package of seeds, and from then on you’ll have plenty of seeds available.
They have a lovely fragrance in the evening, and they can be a real star in your garden!
