Is it o.k. to put my my nasturtim plants out yet? Will the frost, if we get any, kill them off ?

    Hi I want to plant nasturtium seeds but not sure putti potting medium to use. I would like to plant them in situ where they can grow undusturbed. Someone advised that I should use a mixture of sand and cheap compost as opposed to rich fertile compost ?

    Nasturtiums flower best in poor soil, so that sounds reasonable advice if you're sowing in trays or pots.  However,  I usually sow them straight into the ground, especially at this time of year - they do much better that way.image

    Gardening is cheaper than therapy, and you get tomatoes.
