datura plant

nottingham, United Kingdom Gb

hi i bought a datura plant at the weekend & i havent a clue what to do with it as there was no instructions with it all i no about them is that they are not frost hardy. any information would be of great help..



The datura can be planted outdoors or in containers but they need warm, sunny places & top soil that keeps their roots dry. Avoid compost.and manure. When outdoors they re-seed themselves but are prone to fungi in the rooting area. Most of the plant is toxic/hllucinogenic and I when researched this plant, I read that it can cause deliriousness/death. They come in leafy annuals and perennials and mine still hasn't been planted.
