Creativity: Planting Seeds

  1. Find an ‘old flower pot’.
  2. Use gold emulsion / lacquer paint and a medium-sized brush (approximately 2.5cm long) to paint the pot evenly. Let it dry. Then to improve the coating, it may be practical to paint a second coat for a good overall covering.
  3. Fill with a good compost mixture.
  4. Select a packet of seeds from a reputable supplier. In this case the seeds are Nasturtiums that can be planted in the months of May/June.
  5. After about 15 days you will notice the seeds germinating. This is a very exciting time !
  6. After a few days these will grow into seedlings that will fill the flower pot eventually. You may even like to transplant these into a window box / patio tub / garden flower bed.
  7. Nasturtiums need regular watering throughout the growing season, but be careful not to over-water your plants.
  8. Cutting off the faded/dead flowers will prolong blooming.
  9. If you’re growing nasturtiums in containers, they may need to be trimmed back occasionally over the growing season.
  10. ENJOY !
