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.
Nasturtiums have a strong flavour and all parts of the plant are edible. You can use the young leaves and flowers in salads, and, as the plants go over, the seed heads can be used wherever you might use capers, too.
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.
