Yay! Well done. I thought they would probably be ok, they will grow quickly, when big enough start to give them something to cling on to, trellis other bean netting or something it can wrap around 👍🏼

Just noticed the plant name is tagged wrong - it should be Tropaeolum tuberosum (Mashua) 😊 - do you know how to fix it?

They're still in the greenhouse for now, but they're starting to grow fast. I'm quite excited about them ☺ No, I can't remember how to change it, sorry 🤔 @richard.spicer.7906

In your plant list, scroll down to this entry and press the pencil ✏️ button next to the name, then select change encyclopaedia link 👍🏼 - they will grow fast. As with normal Tropaeolum (nasturtiums) they are not immune from blackfly or greenfly so keep an eye on it.

Cheers Rich. Done it 👍 I guess they're a target for cabbage whites too! @richard.spicer.7906
