I need a bit of gardening advice. I've searched all thru but haven't found a topic on this. Can tobacco plants be planted in a veggie garden? Specifically next to corn? The soil here is mostly clay and I've worked the garden over the years with compost/manure/sand/ect and have a pretty good soil going there. I want to be able to stick my tobacco over in the corner of the garden next to the corn. I dont wanna have to go break new ground, I have a little horse manure and compost I can add but I know the garden area is much richer and drains better but I don't know if the tobacco will negatively affect the vegetables or vice versa.

I'm sure someone out there has tried this.

Baylor, I would invite you to visit the HowToGrowTobacco Photo Gallery!

At the top right hand corner of every forum page you shall see a text block saying:

Tobacco Picture
Gallery Click Here

You may left click your mouse to go there, or right click your mouse to open the gallery in an additional tab.

You will discover a list of commands, again in the upper right hand portion of that gallery page.

The upper portion of the page has a random selection of pics from the entire collection since day One,
and the lower section shows a number of the most recent pics.

You may select any of the pics for an enlargement for your viewing pleasure, and, to go to that member's album of pics.

There is a LOT to be learned from the Photo Gallery!!!

I always grow baccy in my veggie garden.
Or, vice versa???

I would advise planting the baccy at least a number of yards from corn, depending upon how tall your corn will grow, and how strong your wind is. Tobacco develops a bit of a stickyness on it's leaf, and the corn tassle frassy stuff sticks to it and does NOT enhance the flavor of the baccy! lol

Tall sunflowers over the baccy ain't good, either!
Been there, done that. :-)

Best

you can grow tobacco next to tomatoes. I have done that every year with no problems.

Well, I did have probs with tomatoes a couple years back... More freakazoids...

Maybe they were gmo replants... looked like radiation damage to the genetic structure of them.

Burned a bunch of em to destroy all the seed.
But no tmv.

You could try to cross tobacco with tomatoes like that TV show and come up with tomacco plants.

those hybred tomatoes can do some funny things. I wouldn't blame it on the tobacco plants. There is a lot of concern about similar plants susceptible to similar viruses and diseases. Meybe you saved seed from hybrid tomatoes. things can get funky then

Yes, that's probably the case, drbob.
I try to save almost everything.
It comes around to bite me periodically.

Well, I don't know that we've had that problem yet... there's a probability it's on the way, if half what I read is even partly correct.

I recall someone purchased a couple packets of sunflower seeds a number of years back... one was Russian Mammoth??? and the other was 'Multi-colored sunflower'???
As drbob said above, hybrids, and perhaps engineered by the seed company and only meant to produce true for 1st generation???
I just don't know...

I've been very cautious segregating baccy seed that was to be saved, but have never taken any precautions with the other veggies. So far it's only caused a problem with the cucurbits and progeny seed seems suspect.

edit:

Here's another pic... This is almost like directly out of the John Carpenter 'Thing' movie!!!

Some sort of mutation trying fiercely to be something.

I think I burned this head after watching the freak show through the season... NOT really something you want to get out and pollute other seed strains that are producing well.
