Empress of India Nasturtium Seeds 5785. Open Pollinated. Annual.

Approx. 25 seeds/pkt (6 seeds/gram)

This wonderful nasturtium has brilliant crimson red flowers 5-7.5 cm (2-3″) across. With its low growth habit of only 30-40 cm (12-16″), Empress of India makes a great border plant. The flowers are a sure fire hummingbird magnet.

How to Grow

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.
