Finally had time to share my #GardenersWorldLive #purchases - first time I've grown a #datura! It looks a little hungry to me? There's a couple of seed heads forming - I can see where the common name Thorn Apple comes from. And maybe a couple more buds too. Advice gratefully received! ☺️ @drnicko

@tash74 beautiful plant!! I think care is similar to Brugmansia. In fact people still get them confused. I think diff is brugs flowers hang down, datura don't! 👍👍
