Nasturtium (Tropaeolum Majus nanum Alaska Salmon) 30 seeds (#1658)

Approximately 30 seeds in 3g packet.
Nasturtiums are warm weather annuals that have been popular in herb gardens, cottage gardens and flower gardens for many years.
An annual plant height of 20-30 cm, strongly bushy. The value of this form is the contrast that makes marbled, discolored, mottled, white-green leaves and salmon-orange, glowing flowers appearing from July to frost.
Extremely attractive, easy-to-grow bed plant for growing in hanging boxes, balcony boxes, pots.
Grow in poor to average, slightly acidic, well-drained soils in full sun. Plants have some tolerance for dry soils.
Best performance occurs in cool summer areas. Some part afternoon shade is appreciated in hot summer areas where plants will be stressed by prolonged stretches of high temperatures.
Avoid fertilization which tends to increase foliage output but decrease flower production.
By reputation, nasturtiums are easy-to-grow annuals that are tolerant of a certain amount of neglect.
Effective in beds, borders, mixed plantings, rock gardens, herb gardens, edgings over walls or as annual ground covers on slopes or other sunny areas. They are also effective in containers, including hanging baskets.
Except for roots, all plant parts (leaves, buds, flowers, pods and seeds) are edible (peppery flavor) and may be used in salads.
