Nasturtium Seeds

michiganaliceOctober 11, 2008


I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions on collecting Nasturtium seeds. All mine are still green (and some are falling off). Can I collect them while they're green or should I wait until they're brown.

Any tips would be super.

Hi Alice,

I have never collected them myself, but came across this post.

You should leave them on the plants until they turn brown. Picking earlier lowers the germination rate greatly.
They may vary in size. That they are hard and not easy to crush is more important.

I'm collecting my own for the first time right now as well. All the ones on the plant are still green, and the brown ones are down in the dirt. Here's another blog post I found about it:
