Nicotiana Plants FAQs

Take a look at some of the frequently asked questions we receive from those looking to buy Nicotiana Plants in the UK. You can contact our Customer Service Team or browse our general FAQs for further advice.

When to plant Nicotiana Plants

Plant Nicotiana outdoors after the last frost in late spring or early summer, ensuring temperatures consistently exceed 10°C. For indoor seed starting, begin the process 6 to 8 weeks before the last expected frost, allowing time for germination and seedling development. Transplant seedlings outdoors when they have a few sets of true leaves. In regions with mild winters, certain perennial Nicotiana varieties may be planted in the fall. Check the specific recommendations on the seed packet or plant label for accurate guidance tailored to your Nicotiana variety.

How to Plant Nicotiana Plants

Planting Nicotiana plants is a straightforward process that begins with selecting a suitable location in your garden or choosing the right container for container gardening. Start by preparing well-draining soil enriched with organic matter, as Nicotiana thrives in fertile conditions. If starting from seeds, sow them indoors 6 to 8 weeks before the last expected frost, ensuring they receive ample light. Transplant seedlings outdoors after the last frost, spacing them according to the variety's recommendations. Whether planted in full sun or partial shade, Nicotiana adapts well to various light conditions. Water consistently to keep the soil moist, and provide support for taller varieties as they grow. With these simple steps, you can cultivate a vibrant and aromatic Nicotiana garden, bringing beauty and fragrance to your outdoor space.

How long do Nicotiana Plants take to grow

The time it takes for Nicotiana plants to grow varies depending on factors such as the specific variety, environmental conditions, and cultivation methods. Typically, Nicotiana plants germinate within 7 to 14 days after starting seeds indoors. The seedlings are then ready for transplanting into the garden after a few weeks of growth. From transplanting to maturity, Nicotiana plants generally take approximately 8 to 12 weeks, during which they produce vibrant blooms. Keep in mind that these are general estimates, and the exact duration may vary based on factors like sunlight, soil quality, and local climate. Refer to the specific guidelines provided on the seed packet or plant label for more accurate timing based on your Nicotiana variety.
