Answer: First of all, you deserve a gold star for reading through all of the questions and answers on nasturtiums! I'm sorry you didn't find the answer you were looking for! Seeds of annual nasturtiums (Tropaeolum)can be started in peat pots, but the plants resent being transplanted so it's best to sow them directly outdoors where you want them to grow. They will sprout without a storage period or stratification treatment, but need darkness to germinate. Plant your seeds 1/4" deep in average garden soil and keep the seedbed moist until seedlings emerge. Gradually apply less and less water as the plants grow (they prefer soil on the dry side). Viable seeds will sprout in 7-12 days, and are generally sown outdoors 2-4 weeks before the last frost date. Good luck with your seeds!
