Tall annual climber with single flowers in mixed shades of yellow, orange or red. Ideal for growing up an obelisk or leave to spread to cover the ground. Will quickly and vigorously cover a fence or arch in summer. The flowers and leaves are edible and have a peppery taste. The pungent foliage also helps to draw aphids away from vegetable crops such as Beans and Brassicas. The colourful single flowers attract pollinators to help set fruiting crops of Beans, Cucumbers, Courgettes Squashes etc.

Nasturtiums flower best on poor soils but will grow on pretty much any soil type. Do not feed plants as this will only make them produce excess foliage and fewer flowers. These plants can be found growing out of rubble so they don't need lots of cosseting. 

Half hardy annual

Sow indoors in April 3-4 seeds per 9cm diameter pot. Keep frost free and plant out at the end of May

Sow outdoors from the end of May or after the risk of frost has passed. Sow direct into a prepared, weed free site, pushing the seeds in about 2cm deep.
