Soil: Nasturtiums thrive in most soil types but prefer a well drained soil that is prepared with compost. Fertilising the plants excessively will put on mostly vegetative growth and flower development will be low, so feed your plants moderately.
Soil pH Level: 6.5-7.5
Position: Prefer part shade.
How to Plant: For faster germination soak seeds overnight in water and then plant directly into the veggie patch. Keep watered until germination. Plants have a tendency to burn in direct afternoon sunlight, so morning sunlight is preferable.
Spacing: 40cm-60cm apart, 2cm-4cm deep
Companion Plants: Nasturtiums are a great companion that can be planting amongst all edibles and under fruit trees.
