A pretty and cheerful mix of yellow, orange, mahogany, crimson and cream-flowered nasturtiums which are quick and easy to grow.
This is a prolific, non-climbing variety which looks and tastes good. It is ideal for the ornamental and vegetable garden and great for pots.
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.
