Nasturtiums Photos

Selected are some photos of Nasturtiums (Tropaeolum). Although it is recommended to sow these directly into the ground I choose to sow these in peat pots on a heat pad. They bloomed for about 2 months before they got black avis ( a bad problem in this area). Still well worth it considering they only cost a $1.79 for a packet of seeds. Next year I'll try them as container plants on the deck. I think it well be a good choice because they don't take much water and fertilizer (as many annuals do) and they are far less messy then many container annuals.

Sorry I don't recall the variety of Nasturtiums. They were suppose to be a bush type. Most stayed very compact and about 15" by 15". Only a few reverted back to a trailing variety.

Nasturtiums are one of my all time favorites! So lovely and I especially like their heart shaped leaves.
Your photos are stunning.
