Question:
I have Nicotiana, Sensation,I started them this summer but they did not grow well, so I would like to know if I could bring them indoors for the winter, will they survive?



Replies:
It looks like you can try. Nicotiana 'Sensation' is an annual so it would normally last only the one growing season, but possibly a perennial in warmer zones 9-10, but probably already shutting down its physiology if grown outside in Wisconsin for the most part.
