This is the journal of my endeavours to grow a range of fruit, veg and flowers from seed, grow organically, and my attempts to create a personal paradise with 1/2 acre of maintained gardens and 1/2 acre wild meadows. Northern Ireland's average daily high temperatures are 18 °C (64 °F) in July and 6 °C (43 °F) in January. Soil type: Clay

Nicotiana (Tobacco Plant) Flower
Variety: Nicotiana 'Evening Fragance', Half Hardy Annual, Carters Tested Seeds, 79p (or 2 seed packs for £1). Sown 18 March 2011 indoor. Planted outside June. Good germination rate; quick growing; great height; good cottage style plant.
Left and Below: In a space of about 2x1 metres I planted about 10 plants.
Lately I have noticed an increasing amount of greenfly on them (pictured).
He really enjoyed his meal (but it was his last).
