This well known and often used annual knows no boundaries in the garden.
With it’s distinctive spurred flowers and large generous leaves Nasturtium is the stuff of childhood memories and no family garden should be without it.
Although Nasturtium will grow at almost any time of year in most climates, it is at it’s best in late winter and spring.
The leaves and flowers of Nasturtium are very edible and add their distinctive flavour to any meal.
We find the seeds of the Nasturtium are an excellent tonic for the cold and flu season and if treated in the same fashion as ‘capers’ are an interesting food.
