Air Cure Burley Tobacco
KINDLY NOTE: Currently we limit tobacco seed to 10 packs per type per customer due to the high demand. Strongly consider growing more than one type, especially our pipe tobacco since these are the easiest to cure for the home grower.
Our standard countrywide delivery fee of R75 is largely a subsidized delivery cost due to the fact that the average courier delivery costs us more than R75, this is all fine normally since most orders are for 17 packs of seeds or more from our extensive collection of seed types and our subsidizing of the delivery fee makes business sense. We have however due to the fact that many tobacco orders are for one or two packs started to loose money on orders which we unfortunately cannot carry anymore, in light of this as well as the fact that our tobacco seed is running low, the following terms apply to orders with tobacco seed in the order:
- We Limit tobacco seeds to 10 packs per order per type, so if you buy all three types you can buy up to 30 packs
- The total order must be for 12 packs of seed (We have a great selection, you don’t have to just buy Tobacco seed)
- We will only allow exceptions to above for our regular clients
- If you place an order that does not comply with above we reserve the right to reverse the transaction.
We trust you will understand above and enjoy your gardening. Lots of Love, The Glen Seeds Team.
We sourced Burley tobacco after numerous requests from clients. For the home grower Burley Tobacco is a must since it is so easy to cure versus pure cigarette tobacco that can be tricky. Due to the scarcity and our cost of sourcing Burley tobacco we unfortunately have to hike the price however it is still worth it a thousand times over.
Burley tobacco can be rolled into cigarettes and is in America the most widely used tobacco in cigarette blends however it is also widely used as a pipe or chewing tobacco . We advise home growers to mix cigarette tobacco with a burley tobacco strain. Where you grow tobacco exclusively for making organic pesticide a mix of types might not be required.
Tobacco seeds are extremely fine and can be difficult to germinate, however we have a superb worm casting germination mix from Lumbricus. We use this mix ourselves and never had any issues with germination. The structure of the germination mix is such that you won’t easily wash out the seeds.
