Thorn Apple is a curious little plant, this one. The scent of the flowers is unmistakable but hard to classify.
Thorn Apple is very easy to grow but seems to do best when left to seed itself in the garden rather than being raised in the nursery.
Some growers claim that it will grow to 2m but we have never known it to grow beyond 80cm.
Please note: ALL PARTS OF THE PLANT ARE TOXIC if ingested.
Raise seeds in the garden.
Plant to a depth of twice the seed size. While it is quite drought tolerant, it does very well when well watered.
Our primary use for Datura stramonium is homeopathic and in that sense, it is invaluable.
20 fresh seeds
Degree of difficulty in germination…..3/10 (1 is easy – 10 very difficult)
