Q. My seeds won't germinate. Why not?
A. Normally, a shortcut in the germination process is to blame. Either not keeping the growing medium moist at all times or using a harsh watering method (a fine puff spray must be used). When raising from seed, tobacco is not very tolerant to wind, overwatering, underwatering, too much sun etc so ensure they are kept in a warm, semi shaded location and keep the mix moist, topping up daily.
