The nasturtiums have produced an unceasing wave of #bloom after bloom & lit up my garden in splashes of red, #yellow & orange. Definitely regrowing next year 🌺🌺

@charlottejhurst Can I dare to interrupt your nasturtium envy. Try taking off all the big leaves right down to main stem. They flourish in poor soil no feeding or rich compost as that encourages a mass of leaves and no flowers. Hopefully you'll get more if you do this. 😀

@harebell thanks! 😊 the bees always tend to fully settle on nasturtium blooms when feeding unlike with smaller blooms so this #bee photo was easier to take than when it was buzzing around. 🐝🐝

@debs69 thanks 😊 The nasturtiums are very popular among the bees in my garden, perhaps because of how many there are 🌺🌺 🐝🐝
