Nasturtium - Edible Flowers

Nasturtium - Edible Flowers

The ideal ground cover plant

Nasturtiums are easy to grow very beautiful annual flowers that brighten up every garden and call all the pollinators to the food forest.

Not only do they attract many pollinators and deter certain pests, but nasturtiums are wonderful edible flowers with a bright, peppery spicy flavor.

The green leaves and flowers of nasturtiums are rich in antioxidants and other nutrients, including vitamin C.

Their peppery flowers and leaves add variety to salads and sandwiches.

 Nasturtium - great ground cover plant

Taking a closer look at the first nasturtium flower. Knowing there will be hundreds or thousands more covering the ground growing anywhere and they will bring the bees to the garden and protect the vegetables from pests.
