How and when do I prune the plant? HB

On plant Nicotiana sylvestris



It is an annual plant...If it has finished flowering discard it unless you are going to collect seed.

Nicotiana is perennial in warmer climates and an annual in colder ones. I have sometimes found that nicotianas survived winter where I am (London). I never pruned them although I removed some tatty bits, they died back to the base leaves. That was N. alata though.
