Description

A delicate and beautifully coloured nasturtium; apricot flushed at the petal heart with the deepest crimson. This is a marvellous cut flower for mixed bunches, and on its own, with the best-ever curves and shapes to every flower and stem. It’s also delicious, peppery, punchy and strong - the perfect addition to any summer or autumn salad.

Care Tips

Once established, nasturtiums need very little attention. If you feed them you will gain leaf at the expense of flowers, and too much watering will give the same result, so watering once a week if they are growing in pots should be sufficient.
