Nasturtium Rumba Mixed A vibrant colour combination of single and semi-double, red and peach flowers set above attractive dark green foliage. Nasturtium ‘Rumba Mix’ is easy to grow, creating a carpet of colour in beds, borders or containers where its lax habit tumbles over the edge, freely flowering all summer. Try growing Nasturtiums in the vegetable plot too and use the edible flowers and leaves to brighten salads.

How to Sow
Direct sow nasturtiums outdoors where they are to grow from March to May. Choose a position in full sun on well drained soil which has been raked to a fine tilth. Sow nasturtium seeds thinly, at a depth of 20mm ( 3/4″) in drills spaced 30cm (12″) apart and cover seed with its own depth of soil. Water the ground regularly, especially during dry periods. Germination usually takes 7-12 days. When nasturtium seedlings are large enough to handle, thin them to 30cm (12″) apart. Alternatively, sow nasturtiums indoors from at a temperature of 15-25C (59-77F). When nasturtium plants are large enough to handle, transplant and grow them on in cooler conditions until large enough to plant outdoors after all risk of frost has passed.
The peppery flavour of the leaves and colourful flowers will enrich salads and the unripened seeds can used like capers – delicious combined with cream cheese or butter in canapés.
