Second year 'gardening' after a first full of lessons from mother nature, hoping to fill the garden full of life and could use all the extra help!

I'm guessing nicoticana doesn't self-sow? Garden would be incredibly bare without the plugs that I ordered late last year as the seed sowing I did wasn't very productive lol

You’re right, they don’t, they are usually really easy from seed so it might be worth another try next year 👍👍

Thanks @pelly I haven't tried sowing these but maybe I'll give it a go, I really loved the green flowers and the moths loved them. I had to keep catching the ones that were coming in the house they were like humming bird size lol

They’re a fabulous plant and the perfume in the evening is sublime. I’m definitely having them again next year 👍👍

Love these. Mine are still very small. Are yours night scented?

I believe so @lydiastirling however my sense of smell seems to be lacking when it comes to flowers, unless they're right under my nose I'm oblivious lol

If you breath on it then smell it up close you will find out if not wait till the evening as they are evening /night scented.
