Organic Jasmine Scented Nicotiana

Captivating Night Aroma: Radiant Star Flowers in Bloom

A stunning plant, it boasts radiant white, star-shaped flowers releasing a captivating fragrance at night. Pollinated by moths, it blooms abundantly throughout the season, perfuming the air with an intoxicating scent from evening onwards. It serves as both a robust cut flower and a striking bedding plant, effortlessly thriving and self-seeding in the garden.

Sustainably grown in 2.75" pots

Selecting the Right Location

Jasmine Scented Nicotiana thrives in full sun to partial shade. Choose a location in your garden that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight per day. Ensure that the soil is well-draining and fertile. Nicotiana prefers moist, loamy soil but can tolerate a wide range of soil types.

Planting Jasmine Scented Nicotiana

Plant Jasmine Scented Nicotiana starts when the soil temperature is around 50°F. Plant them at the same depth as they were in their containers. Water thoroughly after planting to help the roots establish in the soil.

Watering and Care

Nicotiana plants require regular watering to keep the soil evenly moist, especially during dry periods. Water at the base of the plant to avoid wetting the foliage, which can lead to disease. Apply a layer of mulch around Nicotiana plants to help retain soil moisture and suppress weeds. Organic mulches such as shredded bark or straw work well for this purpose.

Fertilizing

Nicotiana is not a heavy feeder but can benefit from occasional fertilization to promote healthy growth and abundant flowering. Apply a balanced fertilizer once a month during the growing season, following the manufacturer's recommendations.

Pest and Disease Management

Nicotiana is relatively pest-resistant but may occasionally attract aphids, whiteflies, or tobacco hornworms. Monitor your plants regularly for signs of pests and treat them promptly if necessary. Insecticidal soap or neem oil sprays can help control infestations. Watch out for fungal diseases such as powdery mildew or tobacco mosaic virus, especially in humid conditions. Provide good air circulation around the plants and avoid overhead watering to reduce the risk of disease.

Harvesting Jasmine Scented Nicotiana

Jasmine Scented Nicotiana flowers can be harvested for their fragrance and used in floral arrangements or potpourri. Harvest the flowers in the early morning when the fragrance is most intense. To extend the flowering season, deadhead spent blooms regularly to encourage new growth and flowering.

Overwintering

Jasmine Scented Nicotiana is typically grown as an annual and does not survive freezing temperatures. However, you can collect seeds from mature plants in the fall and store them indoors over the winter for planting in the spring.

Growing Jasmine Scented Nicotiana is a delightful experience that rewards gardeners with its exquisite fragrance and elegant blooms. By following the tips and guidelines outlined in this guide, you can successfully cultivate Nicotiana in your garden and enjoy its beauty throughout the growing season.

Guarantee

We guarantee the perishable items we sell to be in good, viable condition when we sell them. Perishable items include, but are not limited to, garlic bulbs, flower bulbs, seed potatoes, onion sets & transplants, potted or bare root trees, vegetable crowns, etc. If your perishable item arrives in substandard condition, take photographs and please contact us within 3 days of the purchase date (or delivery date) and we will provide you with a refund of the purchase price (excluding shipping costs), or a replacement. Accordingly, we urge you to open any boxes marked as ""Perishable"" immediately upon receiving them and inspect the shipment thoroughly (do not crack open heads of garlic, we do not accept claims on cracked garlic). Because some perishable items can deteriorate very quickly, we cannot accept any claims beyond the 3-day time frame as it becomes too difficult to determine if these items were delivered in substandard condition, or if they turned into such substandard condition because of having been improperly cared for or stored once delivered.
