Gardening A to Z: N is for Nasturtium

Nasturtium is an annual flower that has beautiful orange and yellow blooms on it. You can also use it to garnish your salads. I have never tried it, but I hear it has a somewhat peppery taste, adding a kick to your garden greens.

I usually prefer to use it in pots with other plants in similar colors. As it grows, it can start to hang down from the pot, creating a beautiful trailing feature in your design. Both of my parents really liked them, too.

Have you ever tried it? Or, have you ever eaten any other kinds of flowers? I have only ever had violet jelly.
