NASTURTIUM MIX – A BEES FRIEND! EDIBLE LEAVES AND FLOWERS! $2.30

EXQUISITE! DOUBLE AND SINGLE JEWEL COLOURED NASTURTIUMS BLOOM IN ANY SOILS FROM SAND TO CLAY AND KEEP COMING BACK YEAR AFTER YEAR! PLANT THEM ONCE AS SEEDS AND NEVER BUY AGAIN! A LOVELY GROUND COVER AND POP IN HANGING BASKETS TOO!
This is an easy-to-grow compact nasturtium for gardens and pots. A very hardy annual, Jewel Mix will flower all summer long in full sun or partial shade. The bright flowers in red, orange, yellow, pink, red, salmon pink, and a mix of these on some flowers produced by Jewel Mix nasturtium seeds are held well above the foliage for an impressive colour display.
The unusual fluted petals add interest to containers. Even before the plants bloom, the foliage is very decorative. The edible flowers can be torn over salads to add colour to summer meals. Try freezing some torn Nasturtium flowers in ice cubes for fancy drinks.
Jewel Mix Nasturtium seeds can be planted in window boxes, hanging baskets or raised beds, and grow to a height of 40cm. Suitable for xeriscaping (Xeriscaping is landscaping and gardening that reduces or eliminates the need for supplemental water).
Not only a great companion plant, attracting bees and trapping snails, this is the ultimate root to bloom with every part of the plant being edible. Consistently self-seeds.
Do not fertilise as you will get leaves only with no flowers.
Position
Prefers part shade.
How to Plant
For faster germination soak seeds overnight in water and then plant directly into the veggie patch or garden. Keep watered until germination. Plants have a tendency to burn in direct afternoon sunlight, so morning sunlight is preferable.

Companion Plants
Nasturtiums are a great companion that can be planting amongst all edibles and under fruit trees.
