Approx. 30 seeds
Sow outdoors, April-June, where they are to flower, 1.5cm (½”) deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Sow two seeds together every 20cm (8"). Seedlings usually appear in 21-28 days. Remove the weaker plant, which can be transplanted elsewhere if desired. Water well until young plants are established.
Sow indoors for earlier flowers, February-May, 1.5cm (½”) deep, individually in small pots of compost. Keep moist. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions (avoid frosts), before planting out, May-June, 30cm (12") apart, into well-drained soil, when frosts are over. Flowers: June to October.
Do not feed nasturtiums, as this will encourage leafy growth rather than flowers. They do well on poor, hungry soils and withstand fairly dry conditions.
