MAIN Arrow to Home Life Home Life Arrow to GardeningGardening Arrow to Flower Gardening Flowers Arrow to Nasturtiums Nasturtiums

Nasturtium flower & leafNasturtiums are those spicy (and delicious!) plants that will grow in any fair amount of sun and practically any soil condition in a backyard, pot container or hanging basket.

The proper way to pronounce them is "ne-STUR-shums", - but no matter how you say it - they are the flower most gardeners choose for areas in which most other plants don't stand a chance.

Rugged, pretty, and very high in vitamin C, you can have your nasturtiums and eat them, too. The peppery flavor of its leaves & flowers are widely used in salads, soups and sauces.

Nasturtium's spicy character is also reported to ward off some garden pests such as cucumber beetles, although aphids may become a problem for nasturtiums at the height of the season.

They only thing they will not tolerate is soggy soil - so water sparingly - and look forward to blooming success with nasturtiums all summer long...
