#nasturtium & the first #sunflower 🌻 #grown-from-seed. I thought they wouldn’t make it (slugs had a go at them pretty hard when they were first planted) but they are now ready to shine 🌻 ❤️❤️❤️

They're lovely! I plan this year to sow the ones for trellis.

@monaboghiu They are! As long as it’s not too hot and dry during the summer, they seem to dislike that!

@carmen-sylva Roxana I've had the Scarlet Red last year. They did ok until the middle of summer when their leaves were covered with insects. Let's see what happens this year. Fingers crossed

@monaboghiu That’s interesting! I also found that the red varieties of Nasturtium were more likely to be devoured by aphids. The orange ones remain the most robust and stubborn..

@carmen-sylva that's good news. The ones I bought for this year are orange and yellow :) I didn't know that the red variety was more sensible.

Considering I’m not a great yellow or orange fan...I love the bottom left! 🤣

@rachelbrooks I like orange and yellow too - just that this year I may have a bit too much orange in the garden even for my tastes, def less next year 😃

After being repeatedly wiped out by black aphids this summer, it keeps coming back with a vengeance. #nasturtiumsrock
