Got quite a few different strains, can list them when I get home.

Got hundreds of little seedlings that need a home otherwise they're going to be biffed out!
Also got a few hundred seeds left over, and will have maaaany maaany more towards the end of the season.

Not really looking to sell unless someone is after bulk.

Just want to carry on the grow-your-own spirit!

P.S Will have a lot of good seeds early next year, that will be use to our climate if anyone is keen then!

Yeah, sorry, was at college. Will go out into the greenhouse when I have a ciggie in a few minutes and get all the names. :)

Ended up throwing out most of my seedlings, but will have seeds soon! Might have a couple black mammoth seedlings to give away though, ended up with a few too many of them.

That's a nice variety. The only one I don't have is Vesta 64. What's the weather like where you are?

Yeah, before I started planting, I looked up what they're all best for and I basically have every area of tobacco smoking covered!
Thanks to RC! :D

Atm the weather is turning up, and starting to warm up. Mild nights, hot days. But with the greenhouse, it barely matters., as long as there's some sun.

But we're starting to get to 18 - 24 degrees celsius days and 8 - 14 degrees celsius nights.
Over the next month or so it's supposed to pick up a lot more though, so we'll see!

Will have some adapted to my conditions at the end of my season,
Think I still have some vesta 64 from RC which are adapted to his weather in the states (obviously, haha).

I would love some seed of each please - always great to have named varieties rather than just 'virginian' or 'burley' to add to my seed library - i can send you some nicotina rustica (Aztec/rapa nui?) in trade if you like? PM me you address and i'll send you mine

Have run out of a lot. Will be able to send some of each at the end of my season.
I will also have Virginia Gold seeds. Which are absolutely amazing for cigerettes.

Vesta 64 is a Virginia gold type bright leaf. It gets 5-6 feet high with light green leaves that turn yellow as they ripen. It matures in around 65 days. It has a light mild flavor and air cures easily.

The seed RC sent you got originated from me. Let me know how it does for you. When I grew it, the weather was abnormally cold and cloudy for a few weeks around planting time. It caused about half my plants to bolt right to flower, and some grew an excessive amount of suckers. The Vesta had a lot more suckers than I thought it should. I think it was a result of the weird weather that year and not typical of Vesta.

Hey there Sky, crazy stuff! They're all the way over in NZ now!
That's very good to hear about the Vesta 64. As they're growing the best out of my seedlings! Sounds like my type of smoke.

My black mammoth plants are starting to grow their stems upwards now, as they've got the first lot of big leaves.
In fact, the biggest one's biggest leaf is now about 3-4 times the size of my thumb, if not bigger!

But I've sorted a 2m x 4m space for the 20 plants to go into, which has a tree in front of it, a wodden fence, retanium wall and my greenhouse behind it, the house to the right of it and a corrigated iron fence to the left of it, but gets sun from 10am until 7-9pm. So very sheltered from our crazy winds but amazing sunshine.

The weather is also picking up. The forecasts keep saying it's going to be shit weather, like it was supposed to start pouring down yesterday and be shit all week.
Yesterday, started cloudy, all of a sudden, no clouds and 25deg C. Hot all day, and right now, exactly the same, 9:53am and barely a cloud in the sky and starting to heat up already!

Will take some pics tonight. :)

Hey everyone. ..I've managed to get rid of the majority of my seedlings to frozenthunderbolt...so he's scored some of the best. .newest varieties in n.z. that there is around at the moment. I'm just glad they're going to someone else who will appreciate & grow them well..keep the varieties pure...bagging properly. .. .for a grow the next year.& to share it around. .
I still have a few if any one else is still keen..if you're not into cigars...They say the pennsilivania red, pennsilivania broadleaf and dutch-ohio which are all conventionally &usually used as cigar filler..are also in some places listed as...& known to be used & quite good in a pipe & pipe blends etc. ..so not only cigar smokers but pipe smokers..don't be shy. .postage is only about $12 around the north island..& not much more nationally.
otherwise they'll basically all just end up on the compost pile..once I get sick of looking after them & keeping them watered.etc. just p.m me if you're keen. ..

I've.still got everything I have listed here ...

Magnolia (wrapper).
Connecticut 49 (wrapper) ct shade derivative
Connecticut shadeleaf (wrapper)
Havana 211 (binder).
Massachusuets ck1 (binder)
Connecticut broadleaf (binder)
Pennsilvania red (filler/pipe)
Pennsilvania broadleaf(filler/pipe)
Dutch-Ohio (filler/pipe)
