Out of Africa Nasturtium

The vigorous, variegated foliage is spreading and covered with blooms in a variety of colors. A single spur type, the blossoms are a spicy addition to a salad. 

30 seeds




Tropaeolum majus


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 

Spacing: 8-12”

Growth Habit:  Trailing

Height and Width: 10-12” x 36-48"

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

    Great seeds! They have a high germination rate and produce lush beautiful plants !

    Beautiful and vigorous

    Almost perfect germination rate-- The foliage is tinged with blue on the edges (cool surprise), and the flowers attracted all kinds of pollinators. I expected this trailing variety to hang more, but perhaps it was improper care on my end that got in their way. It seeded extensively (and has reseeded), so I'll give 'em another shot in the spring.
