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.

Planting Nasturtium

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.

Sally’s Place offers a nasturtium mayonnaise recipe.
