Hi,
I am new to this plant and would like to know a good place to buy seeds from? I know E-bay but do not know what a good price is for seeds. Thank you for any help. Are these easy to grow? I would be taking about growing next year not this year. Also I have two that someone gave me and one has blooms. Should I take these in for the winter or do they come back up? Sorry so many questions... Thanks.

I'm in the same boat with you, I have no clue. A friend gave me some Double Purple Datura plants that are doing wonderfully. She did tell me to watch for the seed pods but I haven't seen any as of yet.
If no one answers you before I can talk to her, I will get back with you.

Datura a generally treated as an annual unless you live in zone 9. I have had some datura make it through the winter outside and bloom the next year .. since they are so easy to grow from seeds, carrying them over is not really worth it, especially in zone 7.

As to finding seeds, check out the seed trade lists and post asking for datura.

Or you can check out plant files for datura .. see who has posted pictures and d-mail them. They also list vendors who have them.

You can dig it up and bring it in .. if you have small children or pets though, probably not a good idea since it is poisonous and seed pods left on the plant have a tendency of literally exploding if allowed to dry out too quickly.

No young kids but lots of pets.. I will see if they live or come back then... I was told to put a panty hose over pods when they start turning brown...
Thanks again this is great I love to learn if only I can keep it in my brain..LOLOL
