Planting & Care
Adding flowers to food has long been a custom in many cultures around the world. For centuries, Chinese cooks have used lotus, chrysanthemum, and lily flowers or buds in their recipes.
American colonists added marigolds to mutton broth. Nasturtiums, among the best-known edible flowers, are popular with chefs. Not only do they dress up a plate, but they re high in vitamins A, C (10 times as much as in lettuce), and D. The leaves, flowers, buds, and seeds are all edible, with a peppery flavour that adds a zing to any dish.
Sunlight: Full Sun
Soil: Nasturtiums prefer poorer soils and they do not need fertilizers (unless your soil is extremely poor). Fertile soil will produce fewer blooms.Nasturtiums prefer poorer soils and they do not need fertilizers (unless your soil is extremely poor). Fertile soil will produce fewer blooms.
Water: Water regularly throughout the growing season, but be careful not to over-water your plants.
Temprature: 50°F - 90°F
Fertilizer: Fertilizer (17 : 17 :17 ) application [ 1g per litre of water ] has to be stared ten days after transplanting ( 30 days after sowing in case of direct sown crops). This can be repeated once in ten days. Spray 1.5g of dittany M-45 during rainy season once in 15 days.
Harvesting: Save the nasturtium chick-pea-size seeds and replant in the spring! Let them dry out on the vine; they’ll fall off. Collect them, brush off the soil, dry them, and store them in a paper envelope in a cool and dark place.
- Plant the seeds about half an inch deep and 10 to 12 inches apart.
- Plants should appear in 7 to 10 days.
- Cutting off the faded/dead flowers will prolong blooming.
- If you’re growing nasturtiums in containers, they may need to be trimmed back occasionally over the growing season.
- Colourful, edible, butterfly-like nasturtium blossoms have delighted gardeners and cooks alike for centuries.
- At different times in their history, they’ve been considered a vegetable, an herb, a flower, and even a fruit!
