Jewel Nasturtium Mix (Tropaeolum spp.)


Native to South and Central America, Nasturtiums will grow in poor soil with no added fertilizer, blooming from early Summer to frost. Prefer direct or indirect sunlight. Leaves, flowers and seeds are all edible. Mixed orange, yellow, cream, red, peach. Useful companion plants, repelling many cucurbit pests (e.g.) squash bugs, cucumber beetles. Also benefit brassica plants, especially broccoli and cauliflower. (Nasturtium, from the Latin "nasus tortus", means "twisted nose", referring to the effect on the nasal passages when eating the plant!) (Minimum 20 seeds)
