Description
A unique colour in Nasturtiums! Deepest velvety, red-black blooms in abundance above fresh green foliage on neat, dwarf plants. Sure to create an eyecatching display in borders or containers when accompanied by Milkmaid. Will grow in any well-drained soil in full sun.

Culinary note: The peppery flavour of the leaves and colourful flowers will enrich salads and the unripened seeds can used like capers – delicious combined with cream cheese or butter in canapés. For more details about edible flowers click here.

Sowing
Sow outdoors where they are to flower. Prepare the ground well and rake to a fine tilth before sowing. Sow 20mm ( 3/4in) deep, in rows 30cm (12in) apart.For earlier flowering: Sow seed, 1cm (1/2") deep, 3 seeds per 7.5cm (3in) pot, in free-draining, damp seed compost. Place at 20-29C (68-86F) until after germination. Gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out after risk of frost. Before planting into containers, ensure plants are well rooted in their pots.

When large enough to handle, thin out seedlings to 23cm (9 inches) apart. For early sown plants, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out after risk of frost. Before planting into containers, ensure plants are well rooted in their pots.

More Info
Water regularly until plants are fully established. Growing nasturtiums is easy and once established, they require little attention.
