Nasturtiums

Nasturtiums brighten up many of my garden borders and garden pots. They self seed happily, and give great colour for months of the year.

 These grow in one of my pots.
Lemon Nasturtiums

In winter I enjoy ordering different coloured nasturtiums from the seed catalogue. They are easy to grow, and I particularly like this subtle lemon colour. I usually have some Nasturtiums growing in pots.

 I also like growing them in pots.
Mahogany Nasturtiums

I have a patch of bright mixed orange nasturtiums which covers part of the bank of the water race by Duck Lawn all summer. These are allowed to live without any outside help or hindrance. And I planted some mahogany coloured seedlings in the top of the Herb Spiral. They are now self-seeding every year.

 The strongest red colour.
Nasturtiums in the Allotment Garden

Nasturtiums are great for a cottage garden look, or to grow as colourful cover for rough ground. There's now a huge patch growing in the new Allotment Garden, most of which are a brilliantly bright scarlet colour. I don't ever remember planting the first one, either. The joy of self-seeding annuals once again shines through.
