Description

We’ve long grown and savoured nasturtium flowers for decorating salads and soups, but in 2019 we trialled mini nasturtium leaves for harvesting too. They have the same delicious peppery flavour and provide another lovely looking and tasty leaf for our mixed salad bowls. For successional sowing and harvesting all year.

Please note, illustrated packets are being introduced gradually over the coming months, availability may vary.

Care Tips

Once established, nasturtiums need very little attention, watering once a week if they are growing in pots should be sufficient.
