Nicotiana - Roulette Mixed
This is an unusual variety producing vibrant colour perfect for a summer border. The flowers have a light scent in the evening. This half-hardy annual reaches the height of 90cm.
Sow indoors from February to April. A warm kitchen windowsill is all you need for starting these seeds. Sow thinly on the surface of a tray of pre-watered compost. Place in a warm, light position. A temperature of 15-20Â°C is ideal. Keep the compost moist. The tray can be covered with cling film to preserve humidity, but remove when seedlings appear, usually in 14-28 days. Transplant them, 5cm apart, to other trays when large enough to handle. Always hold by a leaf, never by the stem. Grow on in cooler, but not cold conditions. Gradually accustom young plants to outside conditions, before planting out, May-June, 45cm apart, into well-drained soil, when frosts are over. Flowers from June to October.
