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.

- nick them with a pair of gardening sheers, literally making a small divot in the side of the seed.
- plant the seeds in fairly dry soil, but moist enough that the seed is throw into production mode.
- plant the seeds about one inch deep so that the seeds are kept in the dark, but place the seeds/soil in a super sunny location so that the soil gets very warm.
- don't plant these in weather over 80 degrees, because the heat makes them turn to absolute mush.
- mist the top of the soil daily so that it doesn't completely dry out, and in a few days the seeds should sprout.
I live in Southwest Florida, so it was tricky for me to find a way to get them to go since our humidity is pretty much 100% all the time and it can get very hot here. But once the seeds take off, are they GORGEOUS. The flowers are a lovely variety of colors, lightly scented, and the plant cascades off the side of the containers and up onto trellises. This is *not* a little plant- even the most "dwarf" of Nasturtiums have turned into giant cascading plants and cines in my garden. And they will reseed.
But if you have the room and patience, these are great seeds and great plants. And you CAN fertilize them- I fertilize mine and it just makes tons of flowers.
