Nasturtiums originate from South America. Their easy growth makes them a favorite with gardeners. These plants can grow in USDA hardiness zones 3 to 10. They are versatile and adaptable to many garden settings. Nasturtiums’ peppery flavor adds a unique twist to meals, making them as functional as they are beautiful.


Planting nasturtium seeds is exceptionally easy. They do best when directly planted in the ground (or containers). Wait until the soil has warmed. Because nasturtium seeds have a firm outer layer, you can speed up germination by soaking them in water for a few hours or scarifying them before planting. The seeds should be sown about 1/2 inch deep. Space them 10 to 12 inches apart. Although nasturtiums grow well in even poor soils, you may want to supplement with potassium-rich amendments to encourage flower growth.


Nasturtiums are remarkably low maintenance. They require only occasional watering when established. Nasturtiums make great companion plants, deterring pests and attracting pollinators. Harvest the flowers and leaves regularly. It will encourage more blooms and keep the plants compact.
