At last - a variegated climbing Nasturtium! From T&M breeding, Nasturtium 'Jewel of Africa' offers a balanced mixture of yellow, red, cream, peach and pink flowers throughout summer. The foliage is attractively marbled and striped with cream, against a light green background making an eye-catching display even before the flowers emerge. This spectacular climbing Nasturtium makes a dramatic container or hanging basket display, but is equally effective in beds and borders as weed suppressing ground cover. They also look good trailing and climbing over conifers, hedges and short walls. Please Note: Occasionally some plants produce pure green foliage, many but not all will develop variegation at a later stage. Height: 240cm (94"). Spread: 150cm (59").
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.

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 (¾”) 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.
