Any ideas why one nasturtium pot is dying (right hand side) but the other is still looking green?
Could be slug bitten, less water, snapped off from the bottom, sometimes things happen, I would just pull it out and plant something else there.
The one on the left is in a corner - does it get a little less direct sunlight than the one on the right? - it looks as if it does - my nasturtiums in containers are struggling a bit in this heat - the ones that get a little more shade are noticeably better than the others - I've moved them all into the shade in the hope that they'll recover a bit.
Mine the same Bekkie, the ones in the runner bean garden are at least 6'long and still trailing,
I'm thinking overwatering? The thing is they wither so quick with the lovely sunny weather we had during last week, so I gave them plenty of water.... Maybe too much. will it recover? Still a little of summer left I hope. I'm reluctant to put nasturtiums in the ground after all I heard about them spreading everywhere.
But what can I plant now in early August Lynn? I've no idea.
Hi Jesse, nasturtiums won't take over in the ground, they're annuals and will be gone at the first frost. Easy to cut back or pull up if they go too far.
For something to plant now I'd go to the GC and see what's there. There's always something
They don't really 'spread everywhere' in an invasive way - after all, they're not hardy so as soon as there's a frost they die. They may self seed but the seedlings are so easily identifiable they're easy to remove if you don't want them.
