Ratings & Reviews


Super good germination of course! Interestingly this packet came with multiple different varieties of nasturtium (or at least it did for me). It wasn't advertised as a mixed packet so I was (pleasantly!) surprised. Some are the classic red, some have darker leaves, some have salmon/peach coloured flowers, some pale lemon-yellow.

These came up in less than a week in seed trays, compared to the Alaska mix that took a couple weeks to poke their heads up. They are just keen as anything, 100% germinated for me.

fool proof plant

Germinates so easy and quick. Plants look after themselves. Mine were damaged by my dogs at seedling stage but they bounced back and look great now.
