Learning Download: How to Grow Nasturtium

Nasturtium plants have trumpet-shaped blooms with a slightly spicy fragrance. In addition to their beautiful blooms, Nasturtium can be used as edible arrangements and garnishes for culinary dishes.

Before Planting: Nasturtiums like full sun unless grown in hotter climates, which is when they should be grown in an area with partial shade.

Planting: For direct sowing, wait until after all dangers of frost have passed. Plant the seeds an inch deep and space them 10 inches apart.

Watering: Be sure to keep them watered during dry spells.

Fertilizer: It is best not to use fertilizer, as it can make the nasturtium produce more leaves and less blooms.

Days to Maturity: Nasturtiums will bloom from summer to fall.

Harvesting: Pluck the flower, bud or leaf off to be eaten. The flavor will grow more peppery throughout the day so harvest in the morning for a mild flavor and later in the day for a more peppery flavor.

Tips: In addition to being used as border pr planted in a flower garden, Nasturtiums grow well in window boxes or containers.
