Growing Directions:
Presoak nasturtium seeds in water for about 24 hours. This allows the seed to draw as much water as possible to begin the germinating process. Plant in moist, well-draining soil medium.  Prepare the soil or cocopeat bed by moistening it and by tamping it. Spread seeds evenly across the surface and cover with a thin layer of soil or cocopeat. For best results, keep seeds and soil moist and place under a grow light when seedlings are poking through the soil layer.

Allow enough time for nasturtium micro seedlings to produce 2 to 4 leaves before harvest. Also, start tasting your greens to mark the changes in flavor as it matures and determine when you like the flavor and appearance best. It's a good way to determine the best time to harvest.
