Very disappointed, only got two plants left-the others withered. They don’t seem to be robust unlike the many types of nasturtiums I have grown from seed.

Specifically bought seeds for a vintage pink pot playing scheme. When plants grew they were red!refunded but wouldn’t buy seeds again as wasted months growing them and had to find a different filler for the scheme. Really disappointed
