How to Grow Nasturtium

Nasturtium is a low-maintenance plant that performs well in poor soils and tolerates some drought.  Select a planting site that is well-drained and receives full sun to light shade.  Avoid over-fertilizing as this can attract pests and cause vegetative growth at the expense of flowers.

Direct seeding (recommended): sow seeds outdoors after the danger of frost has passed.  Sow seeds 1/2" deep, 8-12" apart in well-drained soil.  Water well at planting and keep moist until germination has occurred (7-12 days), being careful to never overwater plants.  Indoors:  Can be started indoors, 4-6 weeks before the average last frost.  Sow seeds 1/2" deep in light-weight sterile seed starting media (avoid heavy potting soils).  Using degradable peat pots will also improve transplanting success.

Transplant outdoors after danger of frost has passed.  Plants should be spaced 8-12" apart, or 3 to 5 plants per pot if planting in a container or hanging basket (Can also be direct seeded into containers or baskets).

Diseases are not usually a problem for nasturtium.

Nasturtium make excellent cut flowers. They have a unique, bright color and a long vase life, making them a great choice for bouquets and arrangements. They also have a pleasant, spicy scent that adds a nice touch to any floral display.

CONSIDERATIONS:

Allow seed heads to mature and then remove from the plant before they have opened.  Store in a cool, dry place until next season.

HARVESTING SEED:

SEED LONGETIVITY:

Nasturtium seeds can remain viable for up to five years if stored in a cool, dry place.
