These seeds produce a beautiful blend of bright yellow, vivid orange and radiant red, lightly scented blooms on a bed of Emerald-green, disc-shaped foliage. The flowers are not just ornamental, both their blossoms and leaves are edible. Try the flowers in a salad for a pop of color and a dash of zesty, peppery flavor. These large seeds are easy for children and others to handle.

Sowing Indoors –
- Start seeds in pots or flats 3-4 weeks prior to your average last frost date.
- Make sure the soil completely covers the seed, as Nasturtiums require darkness to germinate.
- Direct sow after the danger of frost has passed.
- Sow into well-worked soil.
T. majus nasturtiums have a vining habit and are best trellised up a fence or other support, or they will creep and form a spreading mat of foliage and flowers. Pick the dead flowers to prolong blooming and keep uniformly moist.
Nasturtiums do not necessarily like to be fertilized. Avoid excessive nitrogen, as it will promote foliar growth and reduce blooms.
