Peach Melba Nasturtium

4 reviews

An exceptionally early variety that will continue flowering until frost. The 10-12 inch plant holds aloft large creamy colored blossoms with a dramatic raspberry splash in the center of each flower. Blossoms are a spicy addition to a salad. 

30 seeds

 

 

PLANTING

Tropaeolum nanum

Annual

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 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

Peach Melba Nasturtiums

All of the seeds germinated after being soaked overnight. I used a 50/50 mixture of seed starter and topsoil and kept them in a very warm spot on the top lighted shelf where they germinated in just a few days. I have always struggled to get nasturtiums going but these are already 5 inches tall and ready to be transplanted!

I got a late start and it's been very, very dry. So they really haven't come up yet. Sorry.

Peach Melba

This nasturtium sets seeds & will freely make new plants in my dry desert climate. It's tough and needs little care. Pinetree is one of the few places to find the seeds. Have grown all kinds of nasturtiums and this is one of the best.
