• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

As the title says. Has anyone ever direct seeded any early tobacco varieties? I have some Yellow Twist Bud seeds and intend to start plants, but what would I get if I saved some seed and put it right into the ground?

You would get weeds . Back when we used plant beds we had to cover 12' x 100 ' area of plowed land with plastic and set off cans of Bromo Gas to kill the weeds and seeds . Even with using gas to kill weeds we had to uncover beds after the plants started growing and weed those beds . Plant spacing would be a problem along with seeds washing off in all directions after a rain or being buried too deep with a hard rain . Little tobacco plants need protection from wind and rain when they are small .
