Propagation

Sow the seed in individual pots in early spring in a greenhouse[1]. Put 3 or 4 seeds in each pot and thin if necessary to the best plant. The seed usually germinates in 3 - 6 weeks at 15°c. Plant out in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. Especially in areas with hot summers, it is worthwhile trying a sowing outdoors in situ in mid to late spring.

Cultivation

Succeeds in most moderately good soils but prefers a rich light sandy soil or a calcareous loam, and an open sunny position[2][3][1]. Plants often self-sow when well sited[2]. The thornapple is cultivated commercially as a medicinal plant[4]. It can become a weed in suitable conditions and is subject to statutory control in some countries[5]. This species is extremely susceptible to the various viruses that afflict the potato family (Solanaceae), it can act as a centre of infection so should not be grown near potatoes or tomatoes[1]. Grows well with pumpkins[6]. The whole plant gives off a nauseating stench[7].
