Nasturtium Gardening Tips and Advice
Nasturtiums add vibrant color to salads, soups and cakes. This annual herb prefers sun and regular waterings, but does not need a highly fertile soil.
If you start outdoors, be sure to plant
your nasturtium after the last heavy frost. If you plant your seeds
indoors, after six weeks you can transplant this herb. Seeds germinate
after about two weeks and do well in dark conditions of 65 to 70 degrees
F. Insert seeds ¼ inch deep. Space your plants about 7-12 inches
apart. If you want to collect seeds, be sure to allow pods to dry on
plant, and then break them open to collect seeds. If you store your
seeds, remove the fleshy coating first.
Sallys Place offers a nasturtium mayonnaise recipe.
