If you are looking to buy angels trumpet seed, you are in luck. The 'Garden of Eaden' seed shop now has angels trumpet seed in stock as part of its standard range.
‘Angels Trumpet’ is the common name associated with plants from either the Datura or the Brugmansia family and for good reason to – both of these spectacular natives of South America will make a stunning addition to any tropical effect garden.
Often confused with its close relation the Datura, the Brugmansia is distinctly different in that it can grow as large into a small tree whereas Datura's are annuals and will only attain the size of a small bush. In addition, the majority of Brugmansia will display their dramatic flowers pointing downwards while those of a Datura will point upwards.
Sow Angels Trumpet seed from February to March. To help with germination, soak Angels Trumpet seed in warm water for 24 hours before sowing.
Place seed on the surface of lightly firmed, moist seed compost in pots or trays and cover with a fine sprinkling of compost or vermiculite. Gently water, then seal container inside a polythene bag and keep at a temperature of between 15-20ºC. After sowing, do not exclude light as this helps germination. Try to keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged. The seed should germinate within 14-30 days.
Provide a minimum winter temperature of 7C (they may need to be brought in under protection to achieve this) and reduce watering over the winter. Angel's Trumpet plants require minimal pruning, and the removal of old flower heads - although plants can be cut back to base during spring to rejuvenate every few years.
