Virginia Smoking Tobacco
Organically grown.100 seeds/pkt.
Flowers lavender to 5 feet.
80 days to maturity.
Native to the New World.
This is a very mellow smoking tobacco that matures readily, even if the summer is cool or the growing season short. Highly recommended.
Sow seed in the spring or early summer in flats or in a fine seed bed. Press hard into surface (light dependent germinator) and keep warm and evenly moist until germination. Germination in 10 to 14 days.
Transplant outdoors or thin seedlings to 1 to 2 foot spacing.
The plant likes full sun, moderate water, and prefers to grow in a well-fertilized soil (chicken manure).
A side dressing of compost or more manure will really boost yield.
