Description

From Thompson & Morgan’s renowned breeding programme comes this truly astounding development in nasturtiums! Not only do the summer flowers resemble exotic-looking orchids, they also change colour. This colour switch needs to be seen to be believed! If you keep a close watch on the blooms – check them every few days - their colouring develops from red with yellow splashes and veining, to fully yellow. The yellow colouring seems to creep further and further across the bloom, creating a profusion of unique patterns. The final flower colour depends on weather and temperature, but no two flowers will be exactly alike – each one is an individual masterpiece!

This exclusive annual nasturtium is an annual, mounding up to about 30cm (12in) high and then spreading or cascading to 90-120cm (3-4ft) so it’s a great variety for hanging baskets or growing over trellis. Quick growing, Nasturtium ‘Orchid Flame’ produces masses of bright colour all summer long and won’t run rampant like some other varieties.

Nasturtium plants make a great addition to the garden, but also to the vegetable patch where they’ll attract bees and repel many destructive pests, particularly around brassicas. Some gardeners find that they can also act as a useful barrier to pests when planted around tomato and cucumber plants. Height 30cm (12"). Trailing: 120cm (4').

Sowing

Sow outdoors where they are to flower. Before sowing, prepare the ground well by raking until the soil is fine and crumbly and remove any large stones. Sow 20mm (3/4") deep, in rows 30cm (12") apart, or scatter seed in beds or borders as a gap filler and lightly cover over.

Thin out the plants when the seedlings are large enough to handle, to about 23cm (9") apart.

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