As the name implies this variety is covered with velvety red-black flowers carried on dark blue-green foliage. The vine length is shorter than other nasturtiums, 12 inches, ideal for small beds and containers.
Germination: 10-12 days, soaking seeds overnight aids germination
Seed Planting Depth: Sow 1/2” deep
Starting Indoors: Start indoors 2-4 weeks before the last frost. Provide 60-65ºF soil temperatures until germination. Using individual biodegradable peat/cow pots/paper pots helps to reduce root damage when transplanting. Transplant 8-10” apart after the last frost date.
Sowing Outdoors: 2 weeks before the last frost into early summer
Growth Habit: Trailing
Height and Width: 10-12” x 10-12"
Light Needs: Full sun
Soil Needs: Average, well-drained. An abundance of nitrogen in the soil promotes excess foliage with limited blooms
Approximate days to flower from seed: 55-65 days
Uses: Attracts pollinators, flower beds, containers, window boxes, hanging baskets, edible flowers and leaves, companion plant in the vegetable garden-brassicas, cucumbers, melons, squash, radishes, and tomatoes
Care: Low maintenance, minimal care required. Deadheading is not necessary but promotes vigorous blooms. When growing in containers they might need to be pruned back during the middle of the season to maintain their shape and watered more frequently

I always feel confident in my purchases from Pinetree. The Black Velvet seeds germinated well and are flowering beautifully. I will defiantly buy again.
Pinetree never lets me down
