'Nasturtium Tom Thumb mix'

Reds, oranges & yellows, this is mix can't fail to brighten any garden.

This dwarf variety is perfect for pots and beds & will add cheer right through the summer to late autumn.

Part of our Edible plant range- see below .

Nasturtium isn't just a favourite with the Bees, Cooks & Chef's around the world take advantage of it's tasty leaves & petals, adding them to salads & desserts for a decorative touch & fiery flavour. The seeds can be gathered at the end of the season & made into capers too, or saved for next year.

Nasturtium are easy to grow. Simply sow March-June where they are to flower at a depth of 2cm. They are not fussy about soil type but the soil should be fine enough for the seedlings to find their way up & weed-free. Once they are established you can move them around quite successfully. They will flower right through til late autumn especially if they are in a sunny spot.

You might ask why we don't sell seed balls- it's because they often don't really work & they are not good for the planet or your pocket. The chances of seeds germinating from seed balls is very low so you are not getting value for money, neither are the bees and neither is the planet by the time they have been made packaged, transported etc. The reasons for this are many, but mainly it's because it's difficult for the seeds in a seed ball to get the right conditions for germination; the clay/earth needs to be not too compressed, the seed needs to get just enough water and warmth. So we say leave the seeds naked and let them do what they do best. You'll get a lot more seeds this way too... Happy gardening!

There have been a lot of problems with imported seeds lately, people finding they are receiving 'free' seeds packets, seeds that are labelled as one thing and turn out to be another, and all sorts of other things. Seeds that are not native can cause serious environmental harm and importing seeds requires certification for this reason. We would like to reassure you that all seeds from the Happy Hive are native, and from reputable UK sources, so you can be sure that you are getting the best for your garden, the environment and the pollinators that we care so passionately about.
