How to Grow
6 seed/gram. As nasturtiums resent transplanting, directly sow seed into well drained soil in late May 2.5 cm (1″) deep and 5 cm (2″) apart, thinning seedlings to 20 cm (8″) apart. Seed generally germinates within 12 days. Full sun is preferred. Partial shade is recommended in hot summer areas. Blooms have a peppery taste and are quite popular as a salad garnish. We recommend removing spent flowers to help lengthen the blooming period.
