What are the pros? tall and trailing

What are the cons? takes over

Review:

Holy wow, these really stretched out. I took the advice of someone who told me that these thrive in POOR soils, so I literally dug out small chunks of sod right outside of my garden and plunked my transplants in. I was hoping they might climb a fence but they didn't, they were truly trailing, preferring to crawl all over the ground. A few of the fifteen or so that I planted put out tendrils and climbed about a foot up the fence, but then went back down again. They're not suitable for trying to weave thru a fence, as the vines break easily. They make very thick ground cover, and seemed unbothered by heat- they bloomed all summer long here in zone 4. I barely ever watered them. One cool thing- the native bees liked to just sit in the flowers and rest. I had to be careful when I was picking the flowers for salad. The seed pods taste like horseradish, and are tasty on their own or pickled. I had some in full sun and in full shade. The ones in full shade still bloomed, just not as much.

What are the pros? Effortless plant, pretty bloom

What are the cons? slow to flower, short

Review:

I was hoping to use these to trail along our fence, but they never grew more than about 15 inches high. They took a while to get growing, but I may have started them outside a bit later than I should. They were direct seeded in a variety of sun and partly shady areas, and all had good germination. The flowers are pretty and they're a plant-and-forget-it plant, but 10 feet? Nope. Maybe there were regular nasturtium seeds in the pack by mistake?

What are the pros? easier than easy to grow

What are the cons? they just dont like the heat

Review:

March here and only just hitting the 90's and they are starting to die off. But the colors they do provide when it is cooler are beautiful. Nick and soak, plant and forget, and you will be rewarded ! And you can eat them leafs and flowers as well. Whats not to like. I just have to plant them a couple times a year to work around the desert heat.

What are the pros? long trailing, profuse flowers

What are the cons? none

Review:

We grow these by the hundreds and sell them to local lodges and residents. We scarify the seeds which really helps germination. THey POUR out of the baskets; we give them lots of room in each basket. DON'T OVERCROWD!! I wish I could share a photo! We give them lots of half-decomposed kelp from our beach; they love it.And so do my chickens!

Review:

I've been in the horticulture business for 25 years so I hope this advice may be helpful. Nasturtium seed should be soaked in lukewarm water for eight hours prior to planting. They should be planted in soil that is poor in nutrients and if transplanted from a small pot, care should be taken to not disturb the roots. Ideally they should be direct sown and not moved. If grown in a container one should use a potting medium that has no nutrient charge. Therefore, potting soils with "x number of months feed" should not be used. Go to a local greenhouse and ask for "grower mix" or just use straight peat moss. The culprit for lanky plants is too much miracle grow or an extended release fertilizer and too much nitrogen or phosphorus. Never buy "blossom booster" fertilizers. Although phosphorus is necessary for flower production an excess does not produce more blooms, just stretchy plants. Fertilize at half strength once or twice during the summer.
