Propagation by seed

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Datura plants are ridiculously easy to grow from seed. They need full sun and rich fertile earth that drains well. Sow seeds directly outside into a prepared bed in fall in warmer climates and in early spring after all danger of frost has passed in cooler climates.
