Nasturtiums in the richest, burnt amber, Persian carpet colours. Great in pots or front of flower borders, I love picking these for jam jars and vases to put all round the house, and we scatter the whole flowers, as well as individual petals and baby leaves on the top of our late summer and autumn salad bowls. They’re a great multi-purpose mix.This collection contains a seed mix of, or 5 seedlings each of:
- Nasturtium 'Black Velvet' (Tropaeolum minus)
- Nasturtium 'Cherry Rose Jewel' (Tropaeolum majus)
- Nasturtium 'Empress of India' (Tropaeolum minus)
- Nasturtium 'Whirlybird Tangerine'
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.
