Nasturtium is an easy-to-grow annual whose leaves and flowers are edible. These plants with their bright greenery and vibrant flowers are good for containers or ground covers. Their pretty fragrance also makes them a good choice for cut flowers. Nasturtiums are perfect to grow with children because they grow so easily and rapidly.
Save the nasturtium chick-pea-size seeds and replant in the spring! Let them dry out on the vine; they’ll fall off. Collect them, brush off the soil, dry them, and store them in a paper envelope in a cool and dark place.
Nasturtium flowers are said to symbolize patriotism.
The entire nasturtium plant is edible and makes for a beautiful garnish on any summer meal.
