In summer, plants are put outside or transplanted into open ground with a large earthen clod when the threat of morning frost has passed.

Carefully! The plant belongs to the category of poisonous.
Planting: first half of June.
* The name of the plant is correct. It is based on the fact that all parts of Datura are poisonous. However, the sweetish aroma of flowers does not pose any danger - smell it to your health. It is enough just not to use this plant for food and work with it with gloves (of course, if there are no small children in the garden).
Datura is a real glutton. Planting in good soil is not enough for her. It is simply impossible to overfeed this plant. From May to August, Datura can be fed approximately once a week with complete mineral fertilizer at the rate of 20 g per 10 liters of water.
It is curious that datura likes hard water (rather than soft rain). Once a season, it is recommended to shed Datura with milk of lime (1 g per 1 liter of water).
By the way... if you can't sleep on a summer night, then go out into the garden and go to Datura. You will see an elegant flock of various night butterflies over large fragrant flowers...
