Planting And Care
Plant in full sun to partial shade for the most vibrant blooms and optimal growth.
Allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings, avoiding overwatering.
Use well-draining soil to prevent waterlogged roots and ensure healthy growth.
Nasturtiums prefer nutrient-poor soil; excessive fertilization may lead to more foliage than blooms.
Regularly remove faded flowers to encourage continuous blooming and tidiness.
Nasturtium’s aromatic foliage repels certain pests, making it an excellent companion plant.
