I sowed the nasturtiums in paper egg cartons on April 12.
I noticed the first seedling April 20.
By April 22, most of the Spitfire's had emerged.
All but 2 of the seeds I planted sprouted. One died after I accidentally let them dry out. (All the others recovered!) And one was snapped off when I carelessly knocked them over. So I was left with 8. After I hardened them off I planted them so they can grow up the trellis.
I planted a few others directly in pots. I probably could have done this for all of them, because it didn't give them much of a head start.
Also planted a few of the seeds I saved from my nasturtiums last year. Only 4 of those have sprouted so far — one of them just appeared yesterday. So I'm going to keep my eye on those for awhile longer.
"I'm growing Nasturtium "Spitfire" for the GROW project. Thanks, to Renee's Garden for the seeds."
