Description
Masses of deep crimson blooms with golden yellow throats cover the lax, sprawling stems of this vigorous variety. The semi-trailing habit and lush green foliage make Nasturtium 'Crimson Emperor' an ideal choice for summer groundcover. Perfect covering banks, filling beds and borders or spilling from baskets and patio containers. Height: 30cm (12"). Spread: 200cm (78").

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

Sowing

Direct sow nasturtiums outdoors where they are to grow from March to May. Choose a position in full sun on well drained soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Sow nasturtium seeds thinly, at a depth of 20mm ( 3/4") in drills spaced 30cm (12") apart and cover seed with its own depth of soil. Water the ground regularly, especially during dry periods. Germination usually takes 7-12 days. When nasturtium seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them to 30cm (12") apart.


Alternatively, sow nasturtiums indoors from at a temperature of 15-25C (59-77F). When nasturtium plants are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors after all risk of frost has passed.

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