Nasturtiums are fabulous. Not only bright, cheerful and beautiful with their sunny faces and gorgeous trailing vines but also a marvellous companion plant. Plant them near French and runner beans to help lure aphids away.
They are also highly attractive to all sorts of pollinators and to top it all off the flowers and leaves are edible and can be used to add a peppery addition to salads, on pasta or as a garnish.
They will flower for you all summer long and give a fantastic ground cover of orange and yellow beauty. Honestly, you'll not find a more giving flower to grow.
Plant Care Tips
Top tips include...they need full sun and well-drained soil. Plus no need to feed them as this will encourage more foliage than flowers.Sow indoors 3-4 weeks before the last frost, then harden off and plant out
If sowing indoors keep at around 18 degrees to allow for germination
Otherwise, sow directly once all risk of frost has passed
Sow 1cm deep and keep moist
They like full sun and well-drained, sandy soil
Do not feed as this encourages more foliage than flowers

Let customers speak for us
From the moment the cute seed box arrives at your door, until the seedling pop up to say hello...they never disappoint. I've purchased a few different boxes of seeds and know they'll not be my last! Thank you 🐞🌸
I already have baby craspedia seedlings and can't wait to see them grow. I bought a couple of craspedia plants last year and they produce the most lovely yellow pom poms. They look great dotted in three's around the house and I also use them when I make dried wreaths.
This was gifted to my mum for her birthday and she loves it. You've got everything you need for flower pressing, including all instructions.
Nicely packaged and fast delivery
One of our favourites in the range. Balanced subtle tones, good burn time and will definitely buy again. Matt

I am happy to give a 5 star review for Bishy Barnabee’s Cottage Garden Flower and Herb Box.
I loved receiving the beautiful package of seeds, with some dried flowers enclosed and not an ounce of plastic in sight!
All thoughtfully eco friendly wrapped.
The delivery was super quick and I’m working my way through sewing the seeds, on the monthly instructions contained on each packet.
I think any of the seed boxes would make a beautiful gift or why not treat yourself!
I’ll certainly be buying more as I expand my cut flower garden 🌸🐞
Another beautifully presented gift box of seeds delivered quickly and professionally presented. I bought as a gift for a friend who was delighted. I will definitely be back again.
I was so pleased to receive this box of seeds, beautifully presented with a lovely little dried flower to add a special touch, thank you, can’t wait to get started on sowing them .
I can’t rate these seeds highly enough! Germination was super fast and baby plants are lovely and strong. Looking forward to a flower filled 2023 , and will definitely be ordering lots more goodies from Bbcg x
