Hi guys,

I'm back at the tobacco growing game after taking a couple years off. I've got 14 plants in containers, and I set them outside about 2-3 weeks ago now. I'm growing a mix of about 8 different types, one of which is seedman's black sea samsun (TA55).

My black sea samsuns are sprouting suckers already. Is this normal for this type? I think it's the first year I tried this one, or if it's not, I didn't take good notes last time. :)

The plant is only about 6-8" tall, I've never seen suckers this early. I am guessing that I just have to start pulling the suckers, but thought I'd post up and see if anyone had any insight.

Thanks in advance for any experience you can share.

My favorite method is use of a cheapo china retractable razor knife from the dollar store.
I prefer the skinny blades to the wider ones.
They can be easier to use when tied to a handy stick or dowel a couple feet long.
Have fun !
