Hi! I'm Stan DeFreitas, Mr. Green Thumb for You want to raise nasturtiums but they're easy to grow. You can probably find the seed package in many of the nurseries or some of the seed catalogs. Once they're established, they'll often reseed themselves. Nasturtiums are a beautiful plant that are also, well, technically edible. At least some of the flowers and some of the leaves have sort of a peppery taste to them. Now, if you don't want to get into that, well, just raise 'em for being a beautiful ornament. Nasturtiums are one of those plants that you can easily grow in a bright, sunny area and they'll raise beautiful-looking plants, they'll probably get 2-3 feet in height. I usually improve the soil, I usually add some peat, I usually add some dry cow manure like black cow. Try to improve that soil and make a good organic bay soil, probably a pH of about 5.5 to 6.5 if you're going to check your pH and make sure you've got them in an area where you're getting bright sun for at least six hours of sun a day. They'll be a plant that will tend to grow and regrow and if you save those seeds in a dry paper towel, you can start the process all over again. For raising nasturtiums, I'm Stan DeFreitas, Mr. Green Thumb.
