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!
