Probably a good reason to grow then, even if (like me) you're a former nicotine junkie....... Organic pesticides FTW

Indeed, a great insecticide - a good spray can be made from tobacco (ash tray stubs will do) infused water and a little soft soap. Nicotania plants of many types, growing, will have an effect but mixing them can lead to problems with Mosaic Virus.

That can be catastrophic, killing all plants of the genus and a few others too. Naughty weeds are one type that suffer badly from it. :shock:

If it doesn't move and should, use WD40. If it does move and shouldn't use Gaffer tape.

Sorry Bram (and everyone else), I have looked all over and cannot find my tobacco growing files. :oops: :(

I have found a few useful online bits though, some of which I used myself in the past. Theres a pdf download of a short book by the bloke that I learned from but his old site is gone now :

http://www.webbyboy.co.uk/writing/tobacco/Tobaccouk.pdf

this one seems familiar, a cursory read gives a good impression :

http://www.growyourownrollyourown.com/s ... bacco.html

...and I have used this sites shop before :

http://www.tobaccoseed.co.uk/index.html

..if anything else crops up (ha! :lol: ) or I find new info I will post it up.

NOTICE - growing tobacco for personal use is regulated by HM Customs for duty purposes, so please read up on current regs and duties. I think that one is required to keep records and self declare, much like with bio diesel production, but it would be best to check. :ugeek:

The reason I make a point of the above is not just to keep the forum within the law (and you guys too, see how much I love you all ;) ) but because much of the old info on this subject has been taken down, apparently at the behest of HMC&E.

I say apparently because no one is giving a straight answer. But the above notice should keep everything above board and everyone, forum included, safe and happy. Now theres lovely ! :D

Quite a good, short but straightforward account of the whole shebang here -
