The Q&A Archives: Nasturtium seeds

Question: I would like information on Nasturtium seeds.

Answer: Let's start first with the plant: Nasturtiums (Tropaeolum majus) like full sunshine and grow quickly in sandy or well-draining soils. The plants bloom early and often during the season and will self-sow if the flowers are alowed to go to seed. Nasturtium seeds germinate within 7-12 days of sowing. Plant seeds in trays or flats of moistened seed starting mix, cover with 1/4 inch of mix, and place plastic wrap over the trays to help hold in moisture. Place the trays in a warm place until the seeds sprout. Then remove the plastic wrap and move the trays to an area with bright light. Or, sow the seeds outdoors, directly in the garden bed, in the early spring. Nasturtiums are really easy to grow.
