Anyone got an experience of loking after a Datura?? I've been given one, its in my conservatory, in a pot and its about 3' tall
Datura or Brugmansia ?
I think it's the same but name changed. I overwintered mine in GH and lost it.
I think Brugmansia flowers hang down Datura are upright.Brugmansia fairly easy to overwinter in GH.Cuttings easy, Brugmansia very fragrant, plant poisonous.
Assuming it is the perennial brugmansia formerly called datura,keep it frost free and on the dry side. Cut it down to about a foot in spring, water and feed regularly with tomato food. I cut branches off and stand in a coffee jar of water in the kitchen window. When they have made plenty of white roots, I pot them up for new plants.
Datura and a Brug are different:
I know little about Datura but I can advise overwintering Brug's
blairs, I've learned something else. Interesting article, but don't know which I had as it was quite a few yrs ago.
Hope you're right Verdun. I was so pleased that I thought I knew something.
