Description Sowing More Info Delivery Reviews
T&M own breeding. At last! Variegated climbing Nasturtiums. Available in a balanced mixture of yellows, reds, creams and peach/pinks with foliage which is attractively marbled and striped with cream, against a light green background. They make fantastic, dramatic container and basket plants or simply use them for effective ground cover. They also look good trailing and climbing over conifers, hedges and short walls. Please Note: Occasionally some plants produce pure green foliage, many but not all will develop variegation at a later stage.

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.

Sow outdoors where they are to flower. Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine tilth before sowing. Sow 20mm ( 3/4in) deep, in rows 30cm (12in) apart.For earlier flowering: Sow seed, 1cm (1/2") deep, 3 seeds per 7.5cm (3in) pot, in free-draining, damp seed compost. Place at 20-29C (68-86F) until after germination. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out after risk of frost. Before planting into containers, ensure plants are well rooted in their pots.

Thin out young plants to 30-45cm (12-18in) apart when the seedlings are large enough to handle. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out after all risk of frost. They flower most freely in full sun and poor dryish soils. Before planting in containers make sure they are well rooted in their pots.

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