Brugmansia suaveolens - 15 seeds
Brugmansia suaveolens produced richly scented, pure white blooms. Bushy and compact. Patio feature. Height: 5m (15ft).
Sow February to March. Soak seed in warm water for 24 hours before sowing. Place seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at a temperature of between 15-20ºC (59-68ºF). After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged; germination usually takes 14-30 days.
When large enough to handle, transplant seedlings into 7.5cm (3in) pots or trays. Plant out once plants are well grown, 1.5m (5ft) apart or transplant into 25cm (10in) containers. For best results, provide a moist, well-drained soil in full sun. Do not feed plants, but water well.
