Nasturtiums

Zone 93110 | Elaine Cromwell added on March 11, 2018 | Answered

I planted nasturtiums last summer. They sprouted and grew very leggy throughout the fall and winter, with some small leaves, not a ton, and very few flowers. Now they’re super long and leggy with some small leaves, again. What should I do for them so that they can flower and even flourish this spring/summer?

    This can happen when they receive too much shade. They are suited for full sun, and only partial shade. This could also have something to do with poor soil fertility, or compacted soil as well, although soil fertility is not a usual problem. They will thrive in low nutrient environment just fine, usually.
