The flowers are also scented and edible, contributing a peppery flavour to salads. Sow in situ in spring, once the soil has warmed to at least 7oC.

I love Nasturtiums and have grown some beauties. My one problem with this flower is, it seems to attract black fly and it's a hellish job to get rid of them. Any suggestions please?
