organic blue lake bean seedOrganic Virginia Bright Leaf Tobacco 

Nicotiana tabacum

Packet contains approximately 100 seeds.

VIrginia is a classic flue-cured type, mild-tasting and aromatic.  Bright leaf tobaccos are the most common constituent in American cigarettes.  

We grow tobacco to use an insecticide on our plants and chickens.  I grind tobacco leaves up and use it as a dust on the chickens for mites/Lice.  I also soak tobacco leaves in water to make a concoction to spray on bugs in the garden. 

Start tobacco seeds indoors 4-8 weeks before outdoor planting time.  Sow thinly in a lightweight sterile soil mix.  BARELY cover the tobacco seed or don't cover it at all.  Press the soil firmly and water.  Keep evenly moist, but not soggy.  I recommend bottom heating the seed tray unless your soil has a constant 75 degrees or more temperature.  Remember tobacco is a tropical crop.  As tobacco seedlings appear, gradually expose them to direct light.  When the tobacco seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into pots.  Harden off by gradual exposure to outdoor conditions.  After spring frosts transplant to garden 36" apart.
