Old-fashioned charm on large, fragrant blooms
These beloved giant nasturtiums ramble over fences, climb up shrubs, sprawl over rocks, and cascade from baskets and window boxes in the sunny garden, wafting a wonderful aroma that evokes the bygone days of Grandmother’s cottage garden. Seed Fragrant Giants is a unique mix of large-bloomed, colorful flowers on very vigorous vines.
This is a trailing vine which can be trained to grow upwards on a support or allowed to loll over the sides of containers and across the garden floor. Seed Fragrant Giants is a mix of the very best large garden nasturtiums, with 2?-inch blooms of red, orange, yellow, and cream. Both the flowers and the foliage is edible, and releases a peppery aroma that’s quite enticing. Use them to decorate salads and as garnishes on the plate—or simply enjoy them as the garden beauties they are.
Best flowering is from early summer right up to frost, especially in cooler summer climates or in part shade farther south and west. Nasturtiums are attractive to pollinators such as butterflies and hummingbirds, so they make splendid companions to vegetables and herbs. And they are an aphid trap plant: if you have a valuable plant that is being attacked by aphids, surround it with nasturtiums and the aphids will leave it alone (though the Nasturtiums will suffer). This plant is an invaluable pest repellant in any setting.
Direct-sow the seeds in well-drained soil, even poorly fertile areas, and do not overfertilize. (You will get plenty of leaves but fewer flowers in enriched soil.) Seed Fragrant Giants grow rapidly and easily, filling garden or container with brilliant color in no time.
