Garden Bloggers GROW Nasturtium Seeds #SeedGROW

The seed GROW project officially kicked off this month. To date 31 garden bloggers have posted updates of how they're growing their 'Spitfire' Nasturtium seeds provided by Renee's Garden for the project.

A number of the garden bloggers provided some useful tips and techniques in starting their Nasturtium, and seeds in general, and I thought I'd share just a few of them.

Life on the Balcony: Did an interesting experiment where she blogged about the different methods to scarify the seeds prior to planting them.

My Skinny Garden: Found a new way of wintersowing.

Garden Girl: Found a warm spot for her seeds.

The Home Garden: Discovered a germinating difference based on the soil used to sow his seeds.

Gardening in my Rubber Boots: Bravely admitted to having less than great results so far.

  1. I wish I had found this site sooner...but at least I found it! great bloggers featured this week!

  2. This is nice information you got here! Thanks for the links! This is a big help for my garden!

  3. I always thought nasturtiums were one of the easiest plant to grow from seed, and advocated them for children's gardening. Nice large seeds that you stick into the prepared soil and without fussing around they produce the prettiest leaves and flowers imaginable. I love them- but I don't take any trouble with them.

    I always wanted to write a post on them, though- because I have some pretty seed packet and botanical pictures ;) I probably would just say : stick it in the dirt - don't fertilize and enjoy...until the aphids find them!

    ...Now Salpiglossis... I might want to see experiments and info on those :)
