Out of Africa Nasturtium Seeds 5790. Open Pollinated. Annual.
Approx. 15-20 seeds/pkt (6 seeds/gram)
A trailing variety with mottled, variegated foliage and a nice colour combination of yellow, red, cream and peach-pink flowers. Can be used to hang down over walls, twine its way up a small trellis or let it just ramble over the garden and create a thick carpet of flowers. Reaches 1.5 m (5′) height.
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.
