Good morning GTers! This #nicotiana plant was one of the first to start flowering after the spring bulbs this year and it has only just finished! Wish me luck as I'm off into town to brave the Christmas shopping crowds today! Have a super Saturday everyone! 😀

Good morning GTers! All of this hot sunny weather seems to be good news for my #nicotiana blooms! Even the lime #green ones look quite good! Have a marvellous Monday everyone! 😀

@pelly - Morning Jane! They're a lot less gaudy than I'd imagined! All of the colours in this mix are really understated! 😀

Good morning GTers! It's my first time growing these #nicotiana plants and they're a lot more resilient than I'd have thought! They've withstood the gale force winds and torrential rains of last week and other than looking a little bit bedraggled they're doing fine! Have a marvellous Monday everyone! 😀

@Keely - Morning Keely! Lime green? Interesting colour choice! This variety came in a number of different colours, all of them much more understated than that! Have a good one too! 😀

@Keely - Hehe! Very bold! I don't think you'd like this variety with its range of washed out pinks, reds, blues and purples! 😀
