TROPAEOLUM MAJUS 'EMPRESS OF INDIA'
A perpetually popular nasturtium, this variety produces masses of deep-red, semi-double flowers over purple-green leaves. Superb in free-draining or sunny positions where they are ideal for covering unsightly banks or fences.
For best results, seeds are sown directly into the ground where required in the spring. Alternatively, sow in late winter/early spring in gentle warmth, 15-20 degrees C. Prick out into small 3 inch or 7 cm. pots and plant in final position when the plants are established.
