Please find for sale 10 Yellow Angel's Trumpet [Brugmansia Suaveolens] seeds. I also sell the stunning Red Andean Angels Trumpet (Brugmansia Sanguinea) and the White Angels Trumpet [Brugmansia Arborens] and these plants perhaps might look great in combination.





Extremely robust, Brugmansia Suaveolens (Yellow Angel's Trumpet) is a semi-evergreen, tropical shrub or small tree boasting wonderfully coloured, pendulous, narrow trumpet-shaped flowers. Blooming from late summer to winter, they are borne in abundance. Works well in temperate climates such as the UK as it does not flow well if temperatures regularly over 21C. This plant is great in cool temperate gardens where it adds a tropical feel.

Growing up to 10ft, it is best grown in moist, well-drained soils. Brugmansias are heavy feeders and need food during the growing season to promote new growth and flowers. 

Seed Germination

  • Soak the seeds in a cup of water for 12-24 hours
  • Use containers at least 2 inches (5 cm) tall with drainage holes.  For soil, use a well draining mix  -ideally 50% compost and 50% vermiculite or perlite.
  • Place a seed in each pot and cover with 1/2 inch (13 mm) of the compost mix.  
  • Water the soil until it is evenly moist (but not saturated).
  • The best temperature for germination is between 66 to 77° F (19-25).  Nights cooler than this are ok.  Avoid temperatures above 80° F (27°C).  
  • Until they sprout, keep the soil surface moist.  Keep the pots in an area with some air circulation, to prevent stem rot later on. 
  • The seeds can sprout at different times, usually between 3 weeks and 2 months, but occasionally longer.  
  • Once they sprout, give them bright light, but shade them from strong afternoon sun
  • Occasionally a seedling may not shed its seed coat after it emerges from the soil.  If the seed coat doesn't fall off by itself by the 4th day, try to gently pry it apart with your fingernails, tweezers, etc.  You don't need to remove it, just spread it open and the leaves should push it off.

There are plenty of variations on the above - check out some of the videos on the web.

Olly's General Guide to Seed Sowing!



I love sowing seeds and it runs in the family - dad, granddad and finally my great-granddad for whom the hobby helped him get over his experiences in the Great War. I still get a big kick when I see the first seedling poking through from a new plant that I have never sown before or been successful at. However, even the most experienced gardeners draw "blanks" from time to time. Whilst I sow all the seeds that I sell so I know that they are viable, some are trickier than others and problems can arise so here are some tips to make "blanks" few and far between:



1) Don’t Rush! Tempting though it is when that packet arrives in the post to simply bung the seeds in some compost!



2) Google and YouTube are your friends! Take some time so see the methods other people use to germinate the seed. 



3) Think Nature! What conditions do seeds face? For example a seed from a tropical plant will fall to the warm, wet and dark jungle floor. A seed from the mountains of Europe will fall to the floor in Autumn, then have to endure months of freezing temperatures before germinating in the spring. So as growers, what we are trying to do is to simulate the conditions that the seeds will naturally experience and there are plenty of tricks that can be done to short cut the processes somewhat.



4) Good compost pays dividends. The best investment you can make is to purchase three bags - one of potting compost, one of vermiculite and one of horticultural sand. With these three bags I can make up whatever soil type a particular seed likes (although for most seeds I find a 50/50 mix of compost and vermiculite works just fine) 



5) Rot is your enemy. The single biggest danger to seed germination is rot - either before or after "damping off" the seeds germinate. To reduce the risk, ensure you have good free draining soil mix and that it is moist but not wet. Unless the seed variety absolutely requires it I prefer NOT to cover my seeds trays with plastic bags, Whilst germination is often faster this way, it greatly increases the risk of rot. I prefer to place my seed trans inside a watertight plastic tray and water from the bottom - airflow over the surface reduces the risk.
