NASTURTIUM, Double Gleam Mahogany, 10 seeds per package.

Nasturtium Double Gleam Mahogany, Garden Nasturtium or Nasturtium Indian Cress, is a flowering annual plant originating in South America in the Andes from Bolivia north to Colombia. The vines are an edible annual plant with trailing stems growing to 36 - 60 inches long or more. The leaves are large, nearly circular, 1 - 5 inches in diameter, green, with a 1 - 12 inches long stem stalk near the middle of the leaf, with several veins radiating to the outside. The mahogany flowers are quite large, with five petals, eight stamens, and a nectar spur at the rear.

It is recommend to directly sow seeds outdoors in spring. The seedlings do not always transplant well into the garden when started indoors. Before sowing Nasturtium seed, soak the seeds overnight in warm water. The next day, plant the flower seed 1/2 inch deep in an area that gets at least 6 hours of direct sun each day. Have the soil worked so that it's fine and light. The flowers will appear in 8 - 12 weeks after being sown from flower seeds.

They also do very well in pots, hanging baskets and well drain planter boxes. We enjoy them in salads, not only do they make the salad look so inviting with the beautiful flower color and green leaves but the taste is very fresh with a peppery flavor.
