Fertilizing (Garden): Plant in a garden bed amended with compost. No additional fertilizer is required. Nasturtium tolerates most soil types but prefers poor soils.

Watering (Garden): Water daily for the first two weeks post transplanting. Check on plants during hot weather, and water if the soil is very dry or plants are wilted.

Growing in Containers: Very well-suited to containers.

Fertilizing (Containers): Avoid high-nitrogen fertilizers, which impair blooming. Choose an organic bloom fertilizer once plants are established.

Watering (Containers): Water deeply as the soil becomes dry to the touch. During the hot months, check daily.

Growing in Mixed Planters: Excellent for mixed herb, veggie, or flowering pots.

Harvesting: Harvest leaves and flowers throughout the growing season. Seeds may also be harvested and used as a substitute for capers.

Pruning: Dead-head flowers as they fade.

Garden Companions: Nasturtiums are said to keep whiteflies away from Cucumbers, Cabbages, Cabbage-related veggies, and Beans.

Suitability for Indoors: Can be grown indoors under lights.

What about Grow Lights? Nasturtium can be grown indoors under fluorescent grow lights.

Indoor Container Suggestions: 6 - 8" pots with drainage holes.
