HOW TO GROW NASTURTIUM SEEDS
CARE AFTER GERMINATION
In dry weather, it's important to keep Nasturtiums hydrated, since they are fairly carefree and easy to grow. They do well in containers and window boxes. Do not allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. To keep these plants blooming throughout the summer, use liquid fertilizer on a regular basis. It's important that the top edge of the pot is buried to prevent soil moisture from wicking away from the seedling. Nasturtium perennials can reach a height of up to three meters.
BENEFITS OF NASTURTIUM
Like watercress, Nasturtium flowers are edible and taste peppery. In salads or as a garnish, any color and variety is delicious. Leaves can be eaten, too. The leaves and flowers are edible and taste like garden cress. Nasturtium petals and leaves are both packed with nutrients, containing high levels of vitamin C. It has the ability to improve the immune system, tackling sore throats, coughs, and colds, as well as bacterial and fungal infections.
