Pop into Dave’s Garden’s Aussie Forum or the defunct Ozgarden and you’ll see what I mean. Young, old, tropical, subtropical, temperate, no one is spared from the seductive highly addictive Angel’s Trumpet. For some it is their alluring scent wafting thru the evening to dawn.

You can either transplant your plant into the ground or into a larger pot. Potting mix should be a premium free draining mix.
