A lovely mix of nasturtiums from dark burgundy to the palest yellow. I love to grow these between tomatoes to suppress weed. The seeds can be pickled as an alternative to capers, they are quite tasty. The bees love these and since they have a long growing season they provide long-lasting food for pollinators.
DAYS TO MATURITY
55 – 65 Days
DAYS TO GERMINATION:
7-14 days at 60-65°F (16-18°C).
Direct seed: Sow 2 weeks before last frost, 8-12″ apart, 1/2-1″ deep. Cover seed as they require darkness to germinate. Thin when seedlings have the first true leaves.
Transplant: Sow 3 weeks before the last frost. Plant 2 seeds 1/2-1″ deep in individual cells or pots. Cover seeds as they require darkness to germinate. Thin to one plant per cell or pot. Harden off and transplant outside after the danger of frost has passed.
Well-drained, but not especially rich soil. High nitrogen levels promote more foliage than flower production
Edible flowers: Harvest when the flowers are fully open
Edible leaves: Harvest at any time
Bedding plant. Excellent in containers and hanging baskets. Edible.
