Nasturtium, Jewel Peach Melba
Tropaeolum minus. Annual. 12".
Jewel Peach Melba Nasturtium: a delicately frilled soft primrose yellow blooms blotched with raspberry red markings. Flowers appear well above the foliage.A garden favorite and we are happy to bring this seed back. 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 as well as providing a color accent.
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. Nasturtiums do not transplant easily.
