Single Mix Nasturtium
Single Mixed Nasturtium is a larger, prolific, trailing Nasturtium that can get up to 8-10 feet in length. The single flowers come in a bright mix of gold, orange, red and yellow and are a great choice for hanging baskets or to train up a fence or trellis. The leaves, stems, and flowers are edible and have a tangy, pepper taste. Often used as an edible flower in salads and as garnishes, the spicy fresh flavor is a real treat. Bumble bees love these flowers.
Plant Single Mix Nasturtium seed outdoors in well-drained soil in a sunny location after the danger of frost is past. Germination time is 10-14 days at 65 deg. For earlier bloom, start the seed indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost date. Plant seeds 1/8 – 1/4” deep, 6” apart. Keep moist until germination and then decrease as needed. Thrives in poor soil and cool weather.
