Q.Growing nasturtiums in steep bank

Minty added on April 28, 2018 | Answered

I have a steep upright hedge bank, in full sun, has been roundup treated some weeks ago. Can I pop nasturtium seeds into this bank and would the climbing variety trail down over or would it be better to grow the bush type please? Perhaps you can suggest any other seeds I could grow in the hedge bank. It’s too steep to plant in the normal way as seeds would just fall off.

Kind regards,

I think trailing nasturiums will be perfect for this application. There are even black varieties, which I like to seed every year, that are very interesting. This article will give you more information on the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/nasturtium/growing-nasturtiums.htm
