Nasturtium, Alaska Mixed
T. minus. Annual. 8"
Beautiful green and white marbled foliage provides the background for a brightly colored range of flowers set well above the leaves. Alaska Mixed Nasturtium is a shorter nasturtium perfect for containers. All parts of nasturtiums are edible but the flowers are exceptional. The flowers have a peppery taste that combines well with other greens in a salad and provides a punch of color.
Planting Directions: Sow seeds 1/2” deep in fine soil after danger from frost has past. Germination takes 7-12 days. Thin plants to 8” apart when plants are 3” tall. Nasturtiums prefer light full sun, with afternoon shade where summers are hot.
Provide a trellis or other support for climbing species. Nasturtiums will flower best in ordinary rather than rich soil. They do not transplant easily.
