Cheerful Nasturtium Flowering Plants
Nasturtium plants are cheerful yellow, orange, and sometimes red flowers that grow on large creeping vines which will readily overtake any available surface. Nasturtium plants are also very easy to grow, and a natural choice for many gardeners who want an attractive, low maintenance plants. Growing nasturtium plants requires a soil that is not too rich in nutrients, because too much fertilizer will give a gardener many green leaves but fewer bright-colored flowers. At the same time, growing nasturtiums requires the selection of the proper site, one that receives enough sunlight and drains well, because these flowers do not perform well when sitting in a constantly wet site. Allowing the seeds to soak overnight in warm water will be helpful when growing nasturtium plants. Soaking is not an absolute requirement because the seeds will grow without it, but doing so will help them sprout more quickly.
The seeds are comparatively large and easy to handle, but they have a hard coating. A soak in water before planting will lead to easier germination and possibly better germination rates. Caring for nasturtium plants requires giving them adequate room to grow, which is different depending on the type of nasturtium chosen. Climbing varieties do well along a fence and trailing from a hanging basket, while others, like dwarf nasturtiums, are smaller and need less space to spread out along a garden’s border. They also look appealing in window boxes and a variety of containers.
