Nasturtium 'Zanzibar' / Tropaeolum majus  / Seeds

A vibrant mix of bright red, yellow and orange flowers from June to the first frost.  The flowers contrast well with dark green leaves, and the plants grow to a height of about 30cm.  These are good in borders, containers and ground cover.    They attract lots of pollinating insects.

Nasturtiums prefer a sunny spot and well-drained poor soil. 


Pack of 20 seeds.  Sow directly into the ground or into containers in spring.  Or start earlier indoors.  Sowing instructions and a colour photo are printed on the packet.

Hardiness Hardy annual
Flowers June to the first frost
Height 20 - 30cm
Spread 50 - 90cm
Conditions  Sun to part shade and moist well-drained soils
Sow Sow outdoors directly in the ground in spring.  Prepare and rake the ground and sow 20mm deep.  Or sow indoors in early spring in a tray of moist seed compost.  Sow about 1cm deep and keep at 15-20C and germination takes 7-10 days. Pot up and grow on until ready to plant out into the garden in a sunny spot after hardening off.  
Grow Deadhead plants to prolong flowering.  Plants die down after flowering in the autumn when they should be removed.  They will self-seed , but not overwhelmingly, and you should have these plants, flowering in a wider range of flowers, for years from one initial packet of seed.
