This heirloom favorite grows up to 10 feet in a season and is perfect for covering walls, arbors and tall fences. Bright and cheery flowers come in shades of yellow, orange and red. The flowers are spicy and flavorful, making the most beautiful salad. A fine old mix that has become rare.

Review:

I've been in the horticulture business for 25 years so I hope this advice may be helpful. Nasturtium seed should be soaked in lukewarm water for eight hours prior to planting. They should be planted in soil that is poor in nutrients and if transplanted from a small pot, care should be taken to not disturb the roots. Ideally they should be direct sown and not moved. If grown in a container one should use a potting medium that has no nutrient charge. Therefore, potting soils with "x number of months feed" should not be used. Go to a local greenhouse and ask for "grower mix" or just use straight peat moss. The culprit for lanky plants is too much miracle grow or an extended release fertilizer and too much nitrogen or phosphorus. Never buy "blossom booster" fertilizers. Although phosphorus is necessary for flower production an excess does not produce more blooms, just stretchy plants. Fertilize at half strength once or twice during the summer.

Review:

So disappointed in these this year. I was really looking forward to what I've had every other time I planted these in my containers with herbs and hanging baskets. They have always spilled over the sides of everything like a waterfall of cascading lilypad shaped leaves and beautiful flowers, it was jawdropping everywhere I planted it. This year, every single one is doing nothing. All over the place I have these spindly little 4 inch plants of just a knarly looking stem with a few leaves and a few flowers. They all look half dead but flower sometimes, and they are just an eyesore all over my backyard. I just can't get them to do anything else, and I tried sowing more and they barely grow at all. I would have only given these 1 star, but since they actually flower sometimes I gave them 2 stars.

Review:

I've grown nasturtiums every year but these did not do well for me at all. I sowed them in several different areas...different soils, different light, etc. None performed satisfactorily and even in partial shade they couldn't handle desert heat. The rare flowers I did manage to get didn't set seed which is unusual for nasturtiums.

Review:

I grew these in a tractor tire in the yard and the did better and got a lot bigger than the alaska mix. I planted them from seed very close together and the spilled over and were beautiful! Everyone complimented. Also I did not fertilize them and rarely watered them.
