Tobacco grows in both warm and colder climates, but in the latter case, as an annual plant. It is therefore possible to grow, harvest and process your own tobacco in all climatic zones and then create your own blend.
Furthermore, tobacco plants have extremely high ornamental value, with their impressive growth and striking flowers.
This seed set consists of 3 tobacco varieties that are perfectly suited to your cigarette mixes:
Tobacco Virginia Highly sweetened tobacco variety for light tobacco blends.
Burley Tobacco is often used for blends of pipes and cigarettes.
Perique Tobacco Very rare and aromatic variety of Louisiana tobacco, with a strong and slightly sour taste.
One sachet of seeds per variety of tobacco with approximately 500 seeds each
The seed sachets and detailed planting instructions in German and English are packaged in a beautiful gift box – a fantastic and long-lasting gift for the garden. Any plant lover will be delighted.
Sowing: Pre-crop from February. Sprinkle the seeds only on the substrate and press lightly, do not cover with soil. Germination at about 20 °C. Harden and plant in May. Sowing distance 40 cm in the row and 40-60 cm between the rows.
Hoeing, accumulation, regular fertilization and above all a good water supply allow the tobacco plants to thrive wonderfully.
As beautiful as the flowers are, they should be removed early if you really want to process tobacco leaves. This results in the formation of more leaves, which also become much larger and the nicotine content in the leaves remains higher.
