Nasturtiums are fabulous. Not only bright, cheerful and beautiful with their sunny faces and gorgeous trailing vines but also a marvellous companion plant. Plant them near French and runner beans to help lure aphids away.
They are also highly attractive to all sorts of pollinators and to top it all off the flowers and leaves are edible and can be used to add a peppery addition to salads, on pasta or as a garnish.
They will flower for you all summer long and give a fantastic ground cover of orange and yellow beauty. Honestly, you'll not find a more giving flower to grow.
