Renee's EXCLUSIVE - Aloha Mix is blend of soft tropical shades including apricot, cream, soft yellow and rose. These pretty blossoms atop lily pad-shaped leaves make a lovely garden tapestry. Aloha Mix grows readily in pots or window boxes, or plant in garden beds to softly drape and cover bare spots or fill in borders. Both flowers and leaves of nasturtiums are edible with a spicy flavor like watercress. They make tasty additions to salads or sandwiches. Approx. 43 seeds/pack. Mature height 10". 
 

EASY TO START OUTDOORS: In spring, when danger of frost is past, sow seeds in a sunny spot (or part shade in hot climates). Nasturtiums need no added fertilizer in most soils. Poke seeds into well-worked soil about 1 inch deep and 5 inches apart. Press soil firmly over the seeds and keep moist. When seedlings are large enough to handle, thin to 10 inches apart as mounding plants need ample room to grow.

TO START EARLY INDOORS: Sow 2 seeds each in individual 4 inch pots of well-drained seed starting mix 3 weeks before last expected frost date. Cover 1 inch deep. Provide a strong light source. When seedlings have several sets of leaves, pinch out the weaker seedling, leaving 1 per pot. When weather is evenly in the 50°F (10°C) range, gradually acclimate to outdoor conditions. Transplant seedlings into the garden 10 inches apart in full sun.

GROWING NOTES: These mounding nasturtiums are reliable and easy to tuck into any well-drained spot. They are a perfect disguise to cover fading bulb foliage in late spring. Their softly draping leaves and sunny flowers will quickly fill garden beds or containers. Hummingbirds come readily to drink the blossom’s nectar. Leaves and flowers are tasty additions to salads and sandwiches.
