This eye-catching trailing Nasturtium is superb for hanging baskets where it will create neat cascades of fiery blooms, above unusual variegated foliage. Try growing Nasturtium 'Firebird' in baskets, window boxes and containers and watch it ignite your patio all summer long! The edible flowers are also great added to salads for a peppery kick. Trails to: 40cm (16").

Culinary note: The peppery flavour of the leaves and colourful flowers will enrich salads and the unripened seeds can used like capers – delicious combined with cream cheese or butter in canapés. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Direct sow nasturtiums outdoors where they are to grow from March to May. Choose a position in full sun on well drained soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Sow nasturtium seeds thinly, at a depth of 20mm ( 3/4") in drills spaced 30cm (12") apart and cover seed with its own depth of soil. Water the ground regularly, especially during dry periods. Germination usually takes 7-12 days. When nasturtium seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them to 30cm (12") apart.


Alternatively, sow nasturtiums indoors from at a temperature of 15-25C (59-77F). When nasturtium plants are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors after all risk of frost has passed.

Water regularly until plants are fully established. Growing nasturtiums is easy and once established, they require little attention.
