Nasturtiums hardy annuals

Nasturtiums hardy annualsNasturtiums are among the most useful of our hardy annuals, producing a display of the brightest of colours throughout the entire summer. The tall-growing climbers make a gay background to a border, and are equally valuable for trellis-work, while the dwarf varieties are first-class bedding plants, and of great service for ribboning.

The seeds of the Nasturtiums may be sown in pots in September or in the open ground early in spring. A light sandy or gravelly soil is the best to produce a wealth of bloom. Their height is about six feet and one feet.
