Plant as soon as soil can be worked in the spring. For earlier blooms start indoors 4 weeks before transplanting into the garden. Cover seed as they do not need light to germinate. Germinates best at a constant 19 C (68 F) in 10 to 14 days. Grows best in full sun or partial shade. Since Nasturtium resent transplanting sow directly into peat pots or strips and transplant whole container. Excellent as a ground-cover, hanging baskets or window boxes.
