Sowing, Seeds, Planting Direct sow May-July about 2cm (1in) deep in lines or blocks 20cm (8in) apart. Sow two seeds together in each position, seedlings should appear within 3-4 weeks. If both seeds germinate, remove the weaker plant, which can be transplanted elsewhere in the garden. Water well until young plants are established. Nasturtiums thrive in poor soil. May be sown earlier indoors from March-April and planted out after last frosts.
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.
Flowering June - October, 10-12 weeks from sowing
Vase Life 5 days.
Harvesting Flower production: 4-5 months.
Cooking Notes The leaves and flowers are edible, with a peppery flavour.

I was somewhat sceptical about the promised colour when I first saw the above pictures, as most nasturtiums have a black or rust tinge to them, so I thought these would not be the clear bright colour they seemed in the picture. But they were, and 'Jewel Cherry Rose' is a very apt description! I would and am growing these again.

Colour lives up to the photos!

I personally find most nasturtium colours are somewhat harsh, with a certain amount of black in them. Also, they are often definitely on the gold and orangey side and I'm not a fan of gold. This one is different. The cherry colour of these actually has some blue in it, quite a different base compared to many other nasturtiums.
I found that they lived up to the picture and could be mixed with purples, as per the photo above.
Apart from that they were quite fun!

These took a while to get going due to a wet spring and the usual challenges of gardening in the high Pennines but mid september sees them scrambling through my gooseberry bushes and cheering up the path edges. I will definitely be growing these again next year. Lovely.
