The perennial varieties are mostly winter/cold hardy, whereas the annuals have to be grown each year from seed.As well as being highly ornamental, nasturtium flowers and leaves give a crisp, peppery taste to salads, as well as some great colour. They should be watered deeply a few times a week. That said, nasturtiums do need water when the soil dries out. Don’t worry so much with fertilizer as nasturtiums do well without it. If they get too much fertilizer, you’ll end up with lots of foliage, but few blooms. Also, avoid harvesting too much from the plant as it will have a negative impact on its overall health. Should I grow nasturtiums? Someone commented on nasturtiums seeding themselves - well they do if you are in a warm enough zone, but in northern climates the seeds rot, especially if you have freeze-thaw, freeze-thaw type winters like we have in Ontario. note LINK note LINK If you lined up all the dead newborns head to tail, the line would cover more than the breadth of Australia. The seedpods look very similar to capers and taste similar too. This mass death is a routine, but hidden, reality of the sheep industry. Conclusion Growing nasturtium is an easy task, but this does not mean that success is guaranteed. There's an old saying that goes, "be nasty to nasturtiums."

Every year in Australia an almost unbelievable 10 to 15 million newborn lambs die of starvation, neglect and exposure within 48 hours of birth. They like poor soil and not too much water, and giving them fertilizer and lots of fresh water will cause them to die. Snails make a dried lid of slime over the shell mouth, which seals in the snail for several months. So snails use their multi-purpose mucus to literally close the door on winter. I have my Nasturtiums in a corner of the garden that gets virtually no direct winter sun(I live in Australia and have a mediterranean temperate climate) and the plant is there virtually all year. Nasturtiums don’t need it specifically. Mulching. Mulching isn’t needed for nasturtiums. It self-seeds readily and can become a bit weedy, so if you have it growing in your garden, keep it contained. SOPHIE: The common nasturtium is really rampant. Died last Summer from the heat but has come back through reseeding. After all, it has a strong flavor and aroma, which is why you do not need a lot. When it is time to harvest, take out the first blooms first.
