Nasturtium Seeds - Purple Emperor

Nasturtium 'Purple Emperor' is a unique and unusual variety with intricate colouring! These elegant
buds open as dark burgundy then fade to shades of dusky rose, providing a classy and vintage look. Its trailing habit makes it ideal to use as ground cover or cascading out of a patio pot or a container on the balcony.

Each beautiful bloom has a splash of yellow in the throat of the flower and the leaves and flowers can be used in homemade salads for a peppery taste, similar to rocket leaves! These leaves can also be used to make pesto, for homemade Italian dishes too. Or how about pickling the seed pods? This can create the traditional 'poor man's capers'.

Sowing Information

Sow directly into moist, warm, weed free soil where the plants are to flower 13mm ( 1?2") deep. Germination normally takes 7-14 days. As the seedlings develop thin to achieve a final spacing of 25cm (10"). Alternatively, seeds can be started off 3-4 per 7.5cm pot and kept on a sunny windowsill until the last frost has passed.

Live Plants

Suttons strives to ensure that all its plants are delivered to you in the perfect condition for planting. While the majority of our nursery plants cope well with slight delays in intransit, sadly, the time it takes to deliver to certain locations in the UK means that we can't guarantee this for some of our smaller plug products and tender bedding and vegetable lines, which do not respond well to the extra journey time. So regretfully while we offer the majority of our live plant offering nationwide, we are unable to ship plugs, begging plants and tender vegetable plants to the following areas: HS, IV41-IV49, IV51, IV55-56, KW15-KW17, PA34, PA41-48, PA60-PA78, PA80, PH40-PH44, TR21-TR24, ZE1-ZE3.

Non Standard Deliveries

Unfortunately like many companies in our industry we are currently only able to supply orders to UK based customers, excluding those in Northern Ireland. We are committed to finding a way that we can resume or normal services again as soon as possible. Please accept our apologies for any inconvience caused.

Very Large items

If ordering any large items marked large lorry items  a surcharge of £5 per item will be applied. These items are also not available to areas and postcodes shown under non standard deliveries. We may need to contact you regarding delivery so please provide a contact number with all orders.

Prices include VAT where applicable.

We reserve the right to contact you and advise an additional charge where necessary and are happy to quote for carriage of specific products to more remote areas. Some items may not be available to all areas.
