Seed GROW Project, the trialing of 'Spitfire' Climbing Nasturtiums (Tropaeolum majus), grown by seed from Renee's Garden. Forty-four gardeners around the country are growing the same plant and comparing our results. Though I received my seed about a month ago, I have yet to decide just how I'm going to grow it.
It's a little too early to plant it directly outside, since it needs to be planted after all danger of frost is past. In our area, that's Mother's Day or a little after. Last year, we had frost the third week in May! Of course, I could start them early inside, but it's a little early for that, too, according to the packet, which advises to start inside three weeks before last frost.
I could also grow it with the white Clematis on the directional. Now that I could see.
I could grow it in the EarthBox. Bet it would go nuts in that.
I could grow it on a pyramidal bamboo trellis I've got. Except that's falling apart and I don't know if I can salvage it for one more year.
I could grow it in a hanging pot.
I could grow it in a pot.
I could grow it in a plot.
I could grow it on a pole.
I could grow it in a hole.
I could grow it in a box.
I could grow it with some Phlox.
I could grow it in a basket.
Where should I grow it?
I think I'll ask it...
