easy delicious plants: nasturtiums

The peppery tasting Nasturtium flower is a great substitute for radicchio or cress and all parts are edible. Easy to grow and available online + in garden stores, these delectable plants come in a wide variety of colors, and add a splash of color to your plate.

Native to south and central America, Nasturtiums are easy to plant, spread easily and quite hardy they can be planted after your zone’s first frost.

I like to soak my seeds, and direct sow, or plant in peat pots. Generally, they do not respond well to transplanting. However, I find that they are in fact, quite easy to grow, and sprout so quickly whether in full sun or partial shade, last year these pretty flowers lasted into early winter.
