Once the nasturtiums I planted directly into the garden come up, Ill move several of these to the main garden. I have strog concerns about cucumber beetles, which transmit bacterial wilt to cuke olants. Nasturtiums help repel the cucumber beetles. I also have radishes planted throughout the gardens to further help repel the bugs.

Nasturtiums direct-sowed into the kitchen bed around where the cukes will go soon.

These nasturtiums were pre-sprouted in peat pots and are to be transplanted to the garden soon. Nasturtiums don’t like being transplanted so I have had better luck with directly sowing them, assuming the cats don’t dig them up.
