Every salad should have edible nasturtium flowers. Fiesta Blend is a spicy feast of color with flowers in orange, yellow, and orange/peach bi-colors that brighten up hanging baskets and large containers. This beautiful plant is especially exquisite gracing a stone garden wall. The blossom petals are a festive addition to salads and pastas. Plant some in your vegetable patch to attract pollinators. Withstands coastal salty air.

Highly recommend

I sowed these seeds late summer/early fall in my kohlrabi and romanesco bed as a companion plant. Very pretty, and there were little-to-none of the pests that usually plague brassicas.

Only Orange flowers

4 out of 5 stars Jul 4, 2020
The seed packet was a year old so I didn't have high hopes. I started these indoors in early May. To my surprise they took off beautifully. In early June I planted them outside and the plant continue to grow and flower. I was a little disappointed to see that there are only orange flowers on this plant. I don't know if it's because the seeds were a year old. The reason I bought this plant was because of the peach colored blooms.

Owner Response: Hi Heather, Thanks for taking the time to share your review. It is possible the peach flowering seeds expired more quickly that they orange blooming seeds you are experiencing. Storing seeds in a cool, dry place will help them last as long as possible. Happy gardening!

Gorgeous colors

I love the light pink and salmon colored flowers of these. The nasturtium leaves add such beautiful texture to container gardening. The flowers smell so good, like roses!

Fiesta Blend heirloom Nasturtium seeds

Bought these to encourage pollinators for my beans and they certainly did! Germination was much faster than I expected and plants developed very sturdy stems and bright, beautiful flowers. Service was great with speedy delivery. Plus, I got a surprise package of free seeds. Great company with great products. Will definitely order again.

Prolific but not variegated

I was so excited to grow nasturtiums this year. Specially ordered these for the variegated colors instead of the basic solids that you can buy locally. The plants have grown wonderfully but the entire package is bright orange! Am so disappointed!

Unbelievably Big, Robust Plants

I grew these nasturtiums by sowing directly in my garden in late May. They did well through the summer, but around August they took off and grew to be over a foot wide and tall, and were covered with blooms. They went on like that until finally, frost killed them in early November. Definitely will sow again!

Colorful and abundant blooms

5 out of 5 stars Nov 28, 2021
Lots of flowers on hardy vines. I use nasturtiums as companion plants in my vegetable garden, and they do seem to keep insect populations down. But they are also lovely, and make a nice and tasty addition to salads.

Only 2Seeds in Packet??? A Rip Off!

Paid full price at a well known, high-end, national store and got home to a whopping 2 seeds. Good grief. Do better.

Got two seeds to germinate out of the whole packet

2 out of 5 stars Jun 1, 2022
I've heard many other people talk about how easy they are to grow. I got a pack of this from local nursery and planted them the same day. I confirmed those seeds are for 2022. I started 12 seeds indoor and it's been about a month. Only one seed germinated. I direct sowed another 5 seeds outdoor and got one germinated. This has got to be the lowest germination rate of everything I've grown from seeds. I have no problem growing tomatoes, basils, peppers, thyme, oregano from seeds. I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.
Tracy from OR
Owner Response: Hi Tracy, Since these seeds have such hard outer shells, we recommend soaking the seed in water for 12 to 24 hours, making sure not to exceed 24 hours (they would rot from a lack of oxygen). To ensure your future success, feel free to contact our staff horticulturist, who will help troubleshoot what went wrong, and offer advice for better results in the future. Thank you for choosing Botanical Interests!
