What are Nasturtium?

Nasturtium are a cheerful orange/yellow annual flower that look fantastic in a cottage, apartment or coastal garden. 

The clambering habit of nasturtium makes them a great ground cover and their easy-care nature makes them a great option for novice gardeners.  They will flourish in pots.

Culinary Uses for Nasturtium 

Use the peppery flower petals and leaves in salads or to brighten up a salad sandwich, or plant it in your garden as the perfect companion plant for summer vegetables. 

Growing Conditions - Nasturtium

 

Nasturtium adapts to most soil types but needs the full sun. It is a warm weather plant, so expect it to die off at the first hint of frost.  Water young seedlings until they are established, but you shouldn't need to worry about them much after that.  Although it is somewhat drought and wind tolerant, this seedling is not frost hardy.  In most parts of New Zealand this flower is best planted in spring, but in the winterless North you could try your luck right through to autumn.    

Broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, cucumbers, kale, kohlrabi, pumpkins, radish, squash, tomato, and potato are good companion plants for nasturtium.

      We offer a replacement guarantee

      To give you peace of mind, we offer a replacement guarantee if your plants do not arrive in good condition.  If there is a problem please let us know as soon as you receive your package and we will work with you to resolve it.

      What will postage cost?

      Postage varies by region, and by parcel size/weight. 

      Customers are asked to choose the correct postage option at checkout (urban or rural). 

      If you order a worm farm or garden bed and plants in the same order, the postage for the worm farm will be added to the postage for the other items.  (These items are dispatched from separate locations.) 

      If you live in the South Island, Waiheke or Great Barrier Island, please contact us for a custom shipping quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz 

      How often do you dispatch?

      To reduce the risk of plants sitting in a courier depot over weekends, we usually ship orders on a Monday, Tuesday or Thursday (except public holidays).   

      How do you package your products?

      We take extra care to water plants well and drain them before sending.  Plants are shipped in specially designed packaging, designed to reduce the risk of damage in transit. Trees and bushes are securely wrapped in paper to reduce risk of soil escaping during transit.  They are well supported with scrunched up paper to prevent movement during transit.  

       

      Where do you deliver to? 

      We deliver to most locations in the North Island - you can order and make payment via our website, Facebook or Instagram stores.  

      South Island, Waiheke and Great Barrier

      While we deliver to the South Island, we ask customers in these locations to email us for a quote: info@urbanbounty.co.nz  Shipping to the South Island can be expensive and is extremely variable by location - we like to avoid nasty shocks at checkout! 

      We don’t generally ship to Waiheke, Great Barrier except by special arrangement. (Delivery can be expensive, and we want to ensure that our live plants arrive in good condition.)  If items are small and non-perishable (such as seeds) delivery may be possible.  Contact us to discuss options: info@urbanbounty.co.nz

      Do you deliver to post office boxes?

      Unfortunately live products like plants, garden beds and worm farms can't be delivered to Post Office Boxes. Large items (like garden furniture) are delivered to the nearest freight depot for customer pickup if outside of Auckland.
