Nasturtium – 2 in 9cm pot
Ready from May 1st.
Nasturtium – Tip Top Velvet. This is a superb choice with so many single flowers. Easily grown in beds, borders, planters and poor soils. This hardy annual grows up to 30cm in height.
Nasturtiums are edible and the flowers look gorgeous in a salad to make it look extra special, and their uses are brilliant as a trap crop for companion planting as they attract aphids and so can draw such pests away from vegetable plants like tomato and squash. They also attract pollinators, ladybirds and hoverflies, which are all predators of aphids – clever eh?
