I choose Jewel Blend Nasturtium seeds for this review, yet I've used virtually all the nasturtium seeds available for sale. Love this herb!! I sold it for years at a farmers market, at which it was extremely popular. I planted all varieties in hanging baskets and hung them around my booth. The colors were an immediate draw and interesting conversation piece and customers were thrilled to learn that ALL of the pretty plant was edible. I am so pleased that the plant adds color in shady areas, even during our South Texas summers if watered and fertilized regularly. It is a pleasure to write a review for one of my favorite herbs. The herb is way underutilized in gardens. I strongly recommend it.

I wasn't so sure about these plants when I first planted them. In New Zealand, one of my favorite cafes was serving nasturtiums with their food, which was a pleasure for the visual and taste. I have them in a railing planter hanging just outside of my home office and watched a hummingbird with a bright red marking on its head pollinate the flowers. The plant that I have in there has the yellow-orange with red centers and some deeper orange flowers. I must say, they are charming and exuberant with their jeweltone colors and lilypad leaves. Jeweltones are my very favorite color scheme, which these flowers showcase fabulously well. Also, I have eaten them in salads and they are quite good, a spicy delight.
