Product Description

Nasturtium Seeds - Black Velvet

Also known as Tom Thumb Black Velvet, these strikingly unique Dwarf Nasturtiums are lovely to behold! Nearly black, these deepest of red blooms offer amazing depth of color, offset by familiar yellow throats. A prolific bloomer, gardeners can enjoy Nasturtium Black Velvet all throughout the spring and summer.

Be sure to soak your Nasturtium seeds overnight (about 12 hours) to help seedlings break through the tough outer shell.

    How to Plant Black Velvet Nasturtium

    About Nasturtium

    Beautiful and beneficial, Nasturtiums are often planted as companions to vegetables as they can help to repel harmful pests. Not only do Nasturtiums produce gorgeous blooms- the blooms are also edible and have a peppery, almost mustard-like taste.

    When to Plant Nasturtium Seeds

    Sow seeds outdoors after all danger of frost has passed or indoors 4-6 weeks prior to the last spring frost date.

    Where to Plant Nasturtium Seeds

    Nasturtiums perform best in full sun, in average, slightly acidic, well-drained soils. Light shade is tolerated in hot summer areas. Nasturtiums do better in soil of moderate to low fertility.

    How to Plant Nasturtium Seeds

    Sow seeds about 1/2" deep and 10-12" apart in the garden if direct sowing. If starting indoors, transplant after seedlings emerge, after 7-10 days, and space as you would if direct sowing.

    How to Care for Nasturtium

    Water regularly throughout the growing season, but be careful not to overwater. Deadhead your plants to prolong blooming. If maintaining your nasturtiums in containers, they'll need to be trimmed back occasionally to promote new foliage. Leaves and flowers can be harvested anytime, using scissors to avoid damaging the plants.

lovely dark flowers

I planted these along with the Yeti nasturtium seeds and they look so striking together. The Black Velvet flowers are a rich dark red and they are drought tolerant.
