‘Spitfires’ Hanging in There

The ‘Spitfire’ nasturtiums I’ve been growing this summer as part of the SeedGROW Project are long-gone from my container garden, but seem to be thriving in two in-ground gardens. In the backyard, one plant is climbing up the pergola, looking as healthy as can be, and in front, another is starting to crawl across the driveway. The relative health of the nasties is not a surprise. After a spell of very high humidity and 80 or 90 degree temperatures, we’ve been in the 70s (or lower!) most of the past week. We also had about 2 inches of rain fall last week, which perked up the ‘Spitfires’ as well as several other flowers. I can’t guarantee these will still be blooming come the first weekend in October — but we can hope.

“I’m growing Nasturtium “Spitfire” for the GROW project. Thanks, to Renee’s Garden for the seeds.”

  1. Hopefully you’ll get some cooler temps and that they’ll still be blooming by October for you. Finally getting some relief here and mine are loving the cooler temperature.
