A neat ‘n’ tidy winner!
Nasturtium Baby Orange is a breakthrough in Nasturtium breeding and a Fleuroselect Winner for 2020!
A truly beautiful variety, creating a ball-like habit that is covered in gorgeous flowers, rather than an untidy mess, makes for a winning combination!
Terrific tangerine flowers!
Protect your veg the natural way!
Nasturtium Baby Orange does a fantastic job of keeping butterflies and black fly away from your crops of brassicas and beans as it works as a natural deterrent.
Perfect to grow in the corners of your veg beds as it won’t take over or swamp your veg. You could even grow Baby Orange in old buckets, with a few holes for drainage, then you can easily move plants around the plot to help protect your various vegetable crops at any given time.
A deliciously decorative finish for a salad!
Leaves and petals can be added to salads for a fresh zesty flash of colour and additional texture whilst seedpods can be pickled and used like capers.
Leaves, flowers and seed pods have a peppery taste, great added to salads and omelettes.

Use leaves and flowers just like chives!
A beautiful clump-forming perennial producing open clusters of ‘nodding’ blooms, almost like mini chandeliers!
Flowers are a pretty shade of baby pink with protruding white stamens.
A native to the Great Lakes in the USA and Canada, where they use the leaves just like chives. The flowers are also edible with a chive/garlic taste, perfect in a summer salad.
