How To Grow Tobacco

Posted by admin | Posted in Grow Roll Smoke, Growing Tobacco | Posted on 02-08-2011

Tobacco can easily be grown inside your garden. If you would like to try growing tobacco for your own personal use, follow the simple steps below:


1. Choose a soil
Tobacco grows well on well-drained soil and where it’s sunny. Poor choice of soil would lead to the withering and dying of the plant. It is also important to choose a spot where there is no insect or pest infestation.

2. Get quality seeds
Tobacco seeds and transplants can be obtained primarily from places where tobacco is widely grown. If you’re not near such place, you might need to order tobacco seeds over the mail or the internet. Get good commercial varieties for best value.

3. Plant the seeds
Transplant tobacco seeds like you would any other plant in your garden. Remove all debris from the soil and bury the seeds on the surface of the soil. Bed the soil for drainage. Plant the seeds in rows about 24 inches apart.

4. Fertilize
Tobacco needs fertilizers to go rapidly and robustly. There are special fertilizers for this plant. But in their absence, you can use the ones for tomato or pepper. Do not over-fertilize as the results will be less than desirable. However, if you want organic tobacco, you can skip this step. Don’t use pesticides in them either.

5. Remove tops and suckers
The tobacco’s terminal bud or tops should be removed so that the upper leaves will get thicker and larger. Remove the buds before they open. Remove the suckers or axillary buds on the leaves if they grow to an inch or more.

6. Harvest and Cure
When the tobacco plant has leaves old and big enough to make some smoke, it’s time to harvest. Curing may take some time to achieve the best taste.


Is Growing Tobacco Illegal?

Technically speaking, it is not illegal to grow tobacco. In fact, the practice of growing tobacco inside homes and gardens is widely accepted in most nations. It is done in the U.S., Australia, China, Brazil, and India. It could be legal where you are too.


While growing tobacco for personal use is normally a let go case, growing them for commercial purposes is strictly regulated in all countries. Producing tobacco in large quantities to be sold in the market requires license from the government.

The government implements rules against tobacco manufacturing to be sure that market doesn’t have too many cigars than it needs. The move is also done to prohibit the illegal trade of tobacco across countries. Tobacco is hot merchandise and can be addictive. This is why the government of most nations is doing its best to regulate its sale.

In Malta and in Italy, home growers of tobacco need a license from their respective government agriculture agencies. Some countries totally restrict the growing of tobacco in homes. Check with your local officials to be sure.

Growing tobacco in your home has its advantages, especially if you’re an avid smoker. By preparing your own smoke, you can be sure that you get only quality leaves and at half the cost in the market. Cigars grown lovingly in your garden are guaranteed to taste so much better than the ones bought at convenience stores. People who have a distinct love for tobacco are advised to try growing their own rolls right from their backyard.
