It's not quite time to be planting them here in Utah. Planting outside would have to be after the frost date (May 15th), and starting indoors would only be about 3 weeks before then. It's been snowing off and on this week, so it's not looking promising yet. If I was home in California, I could have planted them when I got them a month ago..
It's also uncertain as to where these will be planted, as I have at least 3 garden locations to work with this year - my own place, the community garden I am starting, and a half acre that my best friend and I will share. We are looking to try our hand at growing competition-sized pumpkins on that one, and there will be plenty of room for at least one of these nasturtiums too.
I am looking forward to this experiment. They taste peppery, so I am told, and it would be fun to serve a flowery salad to my friends.
Until it's planting time, I am left just dreaming of planting my Spitfire nasturtiums and reading the blogs of those who have been able to start.
Have you grown nasturtiums? Tried eating them?
