Growing instructions
Nasturtium is a perennial plant for wet locations. Preculture in May. The seed should only be lightly covered with soil. Always keep wet. Wait for vigorous plants to develop before planting outdoors, or even better, cultivate in pot culture. Immerse the pots in water (for example a bucket) and see that the shoot tips reach out of the water. Change the water frequently.
