Received some nasturtium cuttings from a fellow chook keeper. These seem to be popular with permies for eating and pest control. Donor said they will take root if buried but google posts say they are annuals which dont like being transplanted and need to be grown from seed. Anyway have planted some to grow over the chook enclosure and some along the fence so will wait and see who is right.

I have them growing. Some are bush variety and some are the old fashioned sprawling ones. When I harvest them or pull up the old plants, the seeds drop into the soil and pop up next year.They don't last thru the winter here in Kawerau, so the new plants coming thru in the spring are most welcome. i grow them for the colours and also a protection in the garden...
