  • Nasturtium flower seed is one of the largest of any flower species with only 7 seeds per gram.
  • Because it is so large and easy to work with, it is an excellent seed for children to work with for the first gardening experience.
  • Everyone knows that Nasturtiums are lovely and easy to grow, with Mahogany Gleam being no exception!
  • But did you know that they're also edible??
  • Bring some color to your salads as well as your garden bed with a peppery punch of Nasturtium blooms!
  • Be sure to soak your Nasturtium seeds overnight (about 12 hours) to help seedlings break through the tough outer shell.
  • It is recommend to directly sow seeds outdoors in spring.
  • The seedlings do not always transplant well into the garden when started indoors.
  • Before sowing Indian Cress seeds, soak the seeds overnight in warm water.
  • The next day, plant the flower seed 1/2 inch deep in an area that gets at least 6 hours of direct sun each day.
  • Have the soil worked so that it's fine and light. The flowers will appear in 8 - 12 weeks after being sown from flower seeds.
