How to Grow Jewel Mix Nasturtium

  1. Choose a location for your Tropaeolum majus.  It prefers full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil.
  2. Sow seeds directly directly in the garden after the last frost date in your area.  Or started indoors 6-8 weeks before the last frost date.
  3. Water regularly and fertilise occasionally for your Nasturtiums to thrive. Water the plants when the soil is dry to the touch.  Fertilise them every 2-3 weeks with a balanced fertiliser.
  4. Pest and Disease control with organic methods if you can.  Keep an eye out for pests such as aphids, whiteflies, and spider mites, and diseases such as powdery mildew and rust. 
  5. Deadheading encourages more growth.  Pinch off dead flowers to encourage new blooms and maintain a neat appearance.

Heritage of Nasturtium Jewel Mix

Nasturtiums are native to South America, specifically the Andes Mountains.  They were introduced to Europe in the 16th century.  Since then, they have been cultivated and hybridised to produce a wide range of colours, sizes, and shapes, including the Jewel Mix variety.  Nasturtium Jewel Mix is a hybrid variety of the plant genus Tropaeolum, which belongs to the family Tropaeolaceae.   The specific ancestry of the Jewel Mix cultivar may be difficult to prove since it is a hybrid.  This means it was likely created by cross-breeding different varieties of nasturtiums to produce a desired set of traits.  Today, nasturtiums are grown and enjoyed in gardens and culinary uses all over the world and will no doubt add colour and life to your garden too.
