Thanks Amy ... I'm thinking of getting another one as it's such an easy plant to grow.

It is lovely, I like flowers that gives us a little bit at a time, like stays open till 4:00pm. it is strict hey!! that is why I love Nicotiana. My favourite. They look like dog's breakfast during the day, but oh my at night the bring out the magic of aromas. If they are white they take on this beautiful shimmering when the night falls.

It's an amazing plant Doon ... it doesn't matter if it's an overcast day or bright sunny day, it will open just after sunrise and be closed by around 4.00 pm!! That's it ... that's all you get folks! I also have a new 'Four-O'Clock' growing nearby so it will open when the Turnea closes ... looking forward to that one maturing and flowering.
