Never Fail   Leave a comment

Nasturtiums are another great never fail annual.  Plant the seeds directly outside in spring and you’ll have great color all summer.  This picture shows 2 varieties, you can see one is darker red, the other variety is the orange and yellow.  The first year it was an accident that I planted the orange nasturtiums near the purple salvia.  I’m not sure exactly what that plant is, the previous owner of my property had planted it.  And it bloomed in the spring, I assumed that was it, but if you cut back the dead flower stalks, you get more… and more…. and more….all summer.  So the orange and purple were blooming at the same time, and I liked the combination.  Now I plant the nasturtiums there every year.  And you can see a couple brussel sprouts plants.  They didn’t do very well in this location, I don’t think it gets enough sun.
