Talkback: How to sow seeds successfully

Could it be Damping Off as described here?

I find that sowing my seeds a bit later so that light levels are better helps, as does sowing really thinly.

Good luck

Growing Tea

My understanding is that Duty will be due to Customs & Excise when the tobacco is ready to be smoked, even if it's for personal use.    It can take up to 3 years to properly dry tobacco leaves so that they are ready to age, and then at least one to ten years to age it properly before it is ready to shred and smoke so it'll be a while before you have to pay the Duty.

Probably just as well - Nicotiana is one of the biggest killers in the Plant Kingdom.
