Botanical Interests Organic Nasturtium Fiesta Blend Seeds
Annual. Blooms spring to fall. Full sun. 12"-16" tall. A fiery-colored blend of edible flowers and foliage. Fiesta Blend is an explosion of color with blooms ranging from yellow to various shades of orange and peach/orange bi-colors. Every salad should have edible Nasturtium flowers! Their peppery flavor is similar to watercress. The blossom petals are a romantic and colorful addition to salads and pastas. The blossoms can also be stuffed with cream cheese to top crackers or summer squash rounds. Don't forget to plant some in your vegetable patch! They are an excellent companion plant for many vegetables and beneficial under fruit trees. Kids love to plant these seeds that look like tiny pebbles. A hummingbird feast!
When to plant outside: Recommended. Sow in spring after average last day of frost. In very hot summer regions, plant in fall for winter bloom.
When to start inside: Seedlings do not transplant well; directly seed into final location outside.
Special Germination Instructions: Nasturtium seed requires darkness to germinate. Therefore, plant at recommended depth of 1/2". Also, soaking seeds in water for 24 hours before sowing will soften the fairly hard seed coat. Do not plant too early in spring. If temperatures are still cool (less than 70 degrees) during the day, seeds may not sprout.

About Botanical Interests
Curtis and Judy met while waiting to interview for the same horticultural job and soon found they shared a boundless enthusiasm for gardening. Botanical Interests began out of their mutual passion and personal desire for better quality seed and more informational tools to help and inpire gardeners.
"We wanted a level of purity and quality that wasn't easy to find," recalls Curtis. So they searched out the highest quality seed available and began their business in 1997, in the spare bedroom of their Colorado home. The business objectives they established then still hold strong for them now: to inspire and educate gardeners; to provide high quality seed to their customers; and to create an enjoyable work place for employees.
Over the years, Judy and Curtis' family has grown along with their line of seeds which now attracts and pleases customers nationwide.
