Nasturtium - Tip Tip Alaska Deep Orange
This variety produces glowing, bright orange flowers presented well above foliage. It is easy to grow, and ideal for poor soil, beds and containers. This hardy annual reaches the height of 30cm.
Sow outdoors, from April-June, where they are to flower, 1.5cm deep, directly into finely-prepared, well-drained soil, which has already been watered. Sow two seeds together every 20cm. Seedlings usually appear in 21-28 days. Remove the weaker plant, which can be transplanted elsewhere if desired. Water well until young plants are established. Or sow indoors for earlier flowers, February-May, 1.5cm deep, individually in small pots of compost. Keep moist. Gradually accustom plants to outside conditions, before planting out, May-June, 30cm apart, into well-drained soil, when frosts are over. Flowers from June to October.
