How do you grow Tropaeolum or nasturtium from seed?
Plants are super easy to grow from seeds. Sow seeds in your greenhouse or under cover in the spring and plant out seedlings after the frost. You can also direct sow the seeds but we never direct sow seeds except for carrots. So we can not really share our experience with direct sowing other than that the rabbits love to eat all our seedlings before we even see them.
