Every salad should be graced with edible nasturtium flowers! The leaves are also edible. Dreary winter? In a south window, grow these cheery flowers inside! This compact variety is an excellent edging plant that attracts pollinators, and is fairly drought tolerant.

Nasturtium, pleasing in soooo many ways!

5 out of 5 stars Jul 21, 2018
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 love the Jewel Blend pack very much. All the colors - red, yellow, orange and white - so beautiful and easy to take care of. Thank you for the healthy seeds!

Charming, exuberant color

5 out of 5 stars Jun 2, 2020
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.

Hmm, not as abundant as expected

I only got a couple of viable plants from these seeds. Nasturtiums are so variable, I see them grow from a heap of unwatered soil on some neglected garden spot, huge blooms, huge leaves, then on my little plot in nice soil, sunshine, loving care only two plants came up, and perhaps without neglect, barely bloomed! In future I will not expect so much from them and perhaps by disregarding them will have better success! :-)

Owner Response: Hello SLK, Nasturtiums do thrive in poor soil and are sensitive to rich soil. Rich soil prevents nasturtiums from flowering. You can find helpful growing tips like this and more inside each of our seed packets. We sure hope that helps! Happy gardening!

Maybe I have a bad batch?

I followed the direction and even used non rich soil but all 10 seeds didn't sprout at all. I was hoping for at least 3 germination.

I have to give this company a better review since I did see some sprouts. Germination might have been long but it did grow. They also replaced my packet which is super helpful plus a thank you packet of salad greens seeds! I will keep buying for sure!

Don't know why only 1 plant sprung up tall from 8 seeds I planted in a hanging basket. After reading the reviews, I was looking forward to see some colors. Dee

I started out with a small packet of nasturtium seeds. The plants were truly spectacular. So my garden is 80% nasturtiums now. The flower colors are deep and velvety. Nothing like, plus, any part of the plant is edible. A very big plus is nasturtiums are rabbit resistant. Our town is overrun with rabbits and they devour everything except nasturtiums and vinca. Don't wait, plant them now! Remember to soak the seeds in warm water overnight to speed up germination.

beautiful but late bloomers

These were slow-ish to grow and quite slow to bloom despite my living in a fairly warm area (metro DC). But when they did blossoms were beautiful! They stayed wonderfully healthy. I've eaten the blossoms in past years--tender and peppery, good for salads and other places you want a spicy edible flower.
