In winter I enjoy ordering different coloured nasturtiums from the seed catalogue. The colours of course look intriguing, and interesting, I rather like the varieties with subtle striped petals. I like to have have some Nasturtiums growing in pots.
The ALlotmenr Garden, down the side of my property seems to be the best place for my Nasturtiums to grow and self-seed. They're a great indicator for winter, too. As soon as the night-time near frost kills them, I know that cold days are coming.
Nasturtiums in the Allotment Garden
Nasturtiums are great for a cottage garden look, or to grow as colourful cover for rough ground. There's always joy as these self-seeding annuals shine through the rest of the mess!
