Thanks, I always do the same with fresh seeds but these will be dry before I can plant them! These are the golden nasturtiums with yellow and red flowers. I've only ever planted the orange ones.
You can cover them with any light material at night to protect them from frost. I always covered mine with fine garden netting in winter.
I love nasturtiums! I use the leaves, flowers and seeds in food and my kids eat them out the garden as is lol!
