nasturtiums from seed




I started these from seeds I got in the seed swap last fall. The past few days they have gone crazy. I'm not dead heading them because I want every seed I can get for next year.

I've never seen a salmon colored nasturtium before. I absolutely love these. I'm seriously going to hoard all of the seeds and plant all of them next year. I think a large strawberry pot full of them would look great. It just so happens that I have one. Lol

I planted a few different kinds in this pot. They will cross pollinate so next years crop will be interesting. The variegated leaves on yours are great. Keep me in mind when you are counting seeds this fall
