Nasturtiums

I sowed some nasturtiums (Tropaeolum majus) for the first time in years this June. Up until now the little plants were not doing much but now they are starting to pick up, producing more flowers everyday.




My favorite flower color so far is the one in the third picture, which also seems to photograph the best.

  1. I find Nasturtiums as versatile annuals, can be used in baskets or left to scramble on the ground as a ground cover and helps create lushness in a border in the summer :)

    As you said they can be a bit late to get going but once it does is very vigorous. There is a variety available that produces huge leaves and carries on growing and growing till the first frosts.
