The project, sponsored by Renee’s Garden, is designed to get garden bloggers across the country growing the same plant from seed. We’ll share the seed starting process, tips, and ideas so we can learn from each other and newbie gardeners can learn from all of us.
My seeds arrived last week–they’re an exclusive variety called “Spitfire” Climbing Nasturtium. Doesn’t this description sound absolutely wonderful?
“Spitfire’s brilliant, scarlet-red blossoms shine out amongst trailing lily-pad shaped green foliage and their nectar is adored by hovering hummingbirds. Train them up short trellises or tripods for a cascade of bright blossoms or use the abundant, fiery-colored spurred flowers and their handsome leaves as a perfect way to disguise neglected areas, soften fences or walls, or tumble from big containers.”
The photo on their website is gorgeous too. I hope mine look this good later this summer!
Tune in every first Sunday for updates on my seeds and visit GROW to see reports from across the US and Canada.
