wintering nasturtium - can they live indoors?

Postby jiorji » Oct 01, 2008 3:08 pm

i'm almost ready to take my plants inside, but some of my balcony container plants are annuals. Can nasturtiums be taken inside to live indoors until next spring?


thanks for the help :mrgreen:

Hi, You can take cuttings and overwinter them indoors by a sunny window. They are prone to aphids. Nasturtium are very fast growers.
They will germinate in approximately 7 days and then they take off.
They are annuals that complete their life cycle within one growing season. Why not use the leaves and flowers in a salad. They are classified as a herb. Sunkeeper :D :D :D :D
