Nasturtiums are easy to grow flowers which have edible leaves, flowers, and seeds. They come in several vibrant colors. They grow well in containers or as ground cover in your vegetable garden.  See Nasturtiums for more growing information.


My friend is growing nastutiums for her salads.  They’re a vibrant yellow gold.





I just love the little flowers.










Wishing you a beautiful day!

  1. Your yellow Nasturtiums are so beautiful! I had also yellow Nasturtiums in seed, but they germinated very poorly. Hope they’ll bloom some day.

  2. I love Nastuftiums I used to grow lots of them where I used to work to decorate the guard room entrance, so cheap and cheerful to brighten up the exterior of such a drab and ugly building, everybody used to comment on how pretty the guardroom looked

    1. I bet it looked great. What makes it even nicer is the flowers really pop on a salad too!

  3. Did you say ” salads “? Nastuftiums, do they taste good? Being an Italian I remember my grandfather taking dandelion greens and making them for salads but never flowers. Very interesting Carol.

    1. There are several types of edible flowers that can be added to salads, etc. Nasturtium is very popular and easy to grow. For me it’s more about how beautiful and the taste is ok. I have allergies and my sense of smell and taste is not the best.

    1. I’ve never tried to grow them but may get seeds for this fall. I think it’s already really too hot now to plant seeds.

  4. Wow. I never heard of these and the fact that you get the best of both worlds. Beautiful and editable. Thanks for introducing me to this and for sharing at #aclwcc.

  5. As soon as I saw the photo of the nasturtiums, I thought “I want to try to grow them to add color to salads.” They are just beautiful. I love yellow flowers. I’m glad that your neighbor had the same idea as I did. That avocado and strawberry salad looks delicious! And beautiful!

  6. I grew nasturtiums years ago in NY and found out they are also edible! The deer and rabbits would sadly eat them here.

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
