Have You Ever Seen Blood Red Nasturtium Flowers?

Over the weekend I saw nasturtium flowers that were blood red. Most people, like myself have only seen yellow or orange nasturtium flowers – hence why I was excited to see such a rare variety.

With permission from the property’s owners, I took a handful of seeds home.

Why grow nasturtium? 

*  They are the easiest flowers to grow
*  Flowers, leaves and seeds are edible
*  Nasturtium will bring in beneficial insects into your garden

These new nasturtium seeds are now planted around our raised garden beds.

Fingers crossed.

    • My friend’s son is the head chef of a top Southern Highlands restaurant (two chef hats). He makes nasturtium soup from the smaller round leaves. Apparently the soup is not only expensive but absolutely delicious. Evidently the only ingredient is tiny nasturtium leaves – the recipe is all about how the leaves are cooked. James I LOVE that your chickens eat The nasturtium leaves too.
