I'm looking at buying some double white datura seeds (this will be my first time growing daturas---they're so pretty I just have to try them!) off ebay, but it says that the seeds were harvested in 2006. Will they still be good if I don't plant them till next year?
If stored in a cool dark place datura seeds will remain viable for years. I have successfully germinated 7 year old seeds. I have noticed however that seeds older than 2 years can take up to 5 - 6 months to sprout. So don't give up on old seeds too soon!
Funny you say that X, I did just the thing, if you notice a large leaf in the pic of formosan lillies.A datura, and what I think is a shasta are growing in this mix.Now to find out what the datura is???
You will see a larger leaf to the left.That is a varity of datura.Mike
OMG! Looks like I'm getting ready to get my first dat seeds within the next month. I am soooo gonna try this method:-> !! Matter of fact, I think I'll do it even if it never works! Sounds like my idea of winter fun, and sure to freak out one's friends, too. An added bonus.
X, you are too funny!!!!
