Dee and Carol discuss flowering tobacco (Nicotiana sp.), vegetables that are easy to grow and hard to grow plus a new app to help all gardeners grow vegetables, and a few of their favorite old gardening books.  Here are some helpful links:

Flowers:  

The lime-green Nicotiana langsdorffii, with a narrow bell-shaped flower is hard to find seeds for but Louis the Plant Geek also grows this flower.


Nan Ondra from Hayefield has an entire post on Nicotianas she’s loved. She also has a cross between Nicotiana langsdorffii and N. alata ‘Lime Green’ called ‘Ondra’s Green Mix’ which she may have in her  Etsy shop now.  Botanical Interests also sells a flowering tobacco called Indian Peace Pipe.

Veggies:

Information on a new app for growing vegetables is at From Seed to Spoon.
