Plant details

Peach Melba' is an unusual variety. The flowers are semi-double and creamy yellow, with orange-red centres. Nasturtiums are usually very easy to grow, but this one is quite tender. Grow it in containers where you can give it extra attention, while enjoying its rather special qualities. It also makes a very showy flowering pot plant in summer, for the cold greenhouse, conservatory, or cool, well-lit windowsill.
