RE: tobacco mosaic virus

Hi, Folks!

I would be interested in knowing the seed-saving publications that suggest using tobacco.   

So would I.  I can't remember seeing this anywhere and it certainly isn't in Seed to Seed (first or second edition) or any Seed Savers Exchange publication for the past 4 years.

I don t believe it would be okay to grow Tobacco plants in the garden without increasing the risk of TMV invasion.  

We've grown Nicotina (flowering tobacco) at our garden without ill effects, but they are different species (Seeds of Change offers two types) and closer to "wild" than smoking tobacco, so may not harbor TMV like cultivated plants do. . .

Ya know, industrial hemp just doesn't give growers these problems! ;-D
