Looking For a Bargain?

photo  Sometimes in the quest for the new, gardeners rush right past the old reliables and miss a hidden gem.

I find these lovely, intricate nasturtium blooms anything but ordinary. Add in their sunny nature and desire to bloom their hearts out, and nasturtiums should endear themselves to any gardener, despite the fact that they’ve been around “forever.”

So instead of searching for something new, next year throw a few nasturtium seeds in a pot, leave that pot in a sunny location where you’ll be sure to see it, and for just pennies, you’ll have beauties like these to harvest for salads, or just to brighten your day—well into the fall season.photo

Now that’s a bargain!
