I grow my own and also sell them I ship from Australia though but I will ship them anywhere in the world for the same price and cure them is as hard or easy as u make it I just air cure mine and then I guess you would call it ferment it in an old fridge but if you are after tobacco seeds and I ship them inconspicuously to everyone and I know some ways to get them through any customs

I think its pretty hard to find any tobacco seeds locally at a store. Maybe try posting in the wanted section of you local craigslist. If that doesn't work there are plenty of different places to order them online. I have some for sale here if you want to check them out. The pictures are of a small group of Virginia Gold plants My wife grew for their pretty flowers.

at the illegal seed store? Does it grow wild anywhere? It looks like basil on steroids. I would think that the commercial producers all have some genetically engineered proprietary strain of the plant and would be kept under heavy guard. I don't know but there may be some tough optimal growing conditions that it needs and then you would need to figure out the curing and drying process. Some here, probably subject matter experts, would say growing and using weeds would be easier. I dunno.

Actually it's super easy to grow, and there are curing and drying instructions on this DIY website called Instructables (google it).

Over the counter? No idea. Plenty of seed suppliers online

How can I search for google?

Commercial producers do not buy seeds, but rather "plants" (like one NORMALLY buys tomato plants, rather then start the seed in January inside somewhere).

PS: While I was a young stripe, our neighbors had a very VERY small field of it (less then a quarter acre) where they planted the plants, and even then, they had to plant early, cover with plastic and steam them to keep them warm when it got too cold.

The Tobacco Seed Company has been around for over 10 years and has over 50 types of smokers tobacco seeds. We're based in the UK, but can get seeds over to the USA in a matter of days.

Tobacco can be a fussy plant. From things i've read, it needs a lot of water, so the south west may not offer ideal growing conditions for established cultivars.

Have you considered something like this?

it's a wild species that grows in the southwest. you'll have to find a plant and get the seeds, but... using it is free.

Here in Northern California it grows super easily. Toss some seeds in the ground, water it once a week or more, break off cleanly any leaves that get bug damage (rare) and then when the time is right, pick and dry.

I don't know if it is illegal to grow here in California, but if it is illegal to grow anywhere, it would be here.

Oh. Now I see that you are in Devon. I assumed that you meant the Southwestern US.
