At A Glance: Nicotiana In October



  1. I was surprised by its robust return in the cool fall….really nice.

  2. The nicotiana in my garden has given up all hope, now standing (or more like lying down for a rest in its pot) forlorn and unwilling to respond to any amount of care. Done for the season. But the dahlias that seemed to bother everyone else this year are thriving. They are just amazing right now – some of the big guys are above eight feet tall and still pushing upwards with lots of glorious blooms. For me, this has been the best dahlia year I can ever remember. So go figure… sometimes one man’s end-of-season garden failure is another’s success. As long as the successes here far outnumber failures, as they do, I will remain a happy gardener.
