Climbing nasturtium is a good choice for garden decoration


Despite a little oblivion, climbing nasturtium, like many of its other species, is one of the most popular plants, quite beloved by gardeners. This is a beautiful perennial with graceful leaves covered with a matte bloom.

Climbing nasturtium is not particularly difficult to care for. Growing it in a flower bed or in pots, it is often used to decorate flower beds.

During flowering, nasturtium requires regular thorough watering and fertilizing with small doses of mineral fertilizers (about once every 20 days). She loves sunny places, although it feels good in a slightly shaded place.

Nasturtium is planted in loose, well-moistened soil using a prolonged-release fertilizer (fresh manure is not recommended). For the cold season, the tubers must be removed and stored in dry peat.

Climbing nasturtium blooms a couple of months after planting, continuing to bloom until frost... In the fall, it is recommended to cut the plant right down to the base so that there are no problems during transplantation. The plant does not tolerate low temperatures, having a negative attitude even to light frost, therefore, in order for the plant to continue to please the eye, it should be taken care of before the beginning of autumn.

As mentioned, climbing nasturtium needs regular watering, but excessive moisture is best avoided. Nasturtium is planted on seedlings in late winter - early spring, be sure to transplant it to a permanent place along with a lump of earth in which it grew. So it will painlessly take root in a new place.
