Jasmine Tobacco Seeds - Nicotiana Alata - Aromatic & Pollinator Attractor

Quantity: 50+ Seeds


Jasmine Tobacco, aka Nicotiana Alata is an ornamental variety of tobacco. It’s leaves contain almost no nicotine, so it isn't much good for smoking. The benefit of this plant is that it puts out an abundance of elegant white blooms, and a wonderful aroma that's akin to jasmine. This smell only comes out in the evening, and it attracts hummingbirds, bats, moths, and other pollinators too. An added bonus to this great plant is that it's a perennial, so it needn't be replanted each season. 


All seeds are organic and open pollinated.

  • Growing Instructions

    For the highest yields, It’s best to start tobacco seeds indoors about 6-8 weeks before the last frost; we start them here on the farm in mid March. It's good to sow them in a sterile growing medium; most available seed starting soils should do the job nicely; we use sunshine mix (peat moss and perlite). The soil should be made moist, but not damp. Sow the seeds 1/8 inch below the soil surface. Store in a warm area until tiny sprouts emerge from the soil. A heat mat greatly aids in this step, but is not necessary. Seeds can take up to 3 weeks to germinate, but may take less time too. Once germinated, and the first true leaf has formed, it's time to pot up to a larger container that contains a good quality potting soil. Transplant to their final location when the nighttime temperatures are consistently 8°C or higher; for us at the farm, this is around early May. Mulch well to ensure success when overwintering in zone 6 or warmer.
